Mermaid and Stash!

Sorry I haven't been posting - all my time has been taken up with job training and Spring cleaning - hardly any time for stitching!

Here's my SK Mermaid of the Deep after her 10 hours:

The confetti really slowed me down - I may try parking threads with the bigger HAEDs. I don't know.

JoAnn's is having a HUGE sale, and I got a little extra from work for doing training, so...

Working on HAEDs made me realize I need two things:

Bigger Q-Snaps and smaller needles :D

McCall's patterns were on sale for $0.99 (limit 10). They didn't have 10 I wanted, but I did grab some more costumes for my sis and I to work on this winter. I don't do a lot of sewing in the summer, and unfortunately this winter just past I didn't get to do much, but I have plans for '10!!!

Also for my HAEDs - 238 (I think) skeins of DMC. And they didn't have all I needed... yikes!

My receipt - lol! I put the bulbs there for size info.

I also won a stash giveaway on Felicity's blog - this is what she sent me!
I was very excited when I opened the package - can I start stitching them all right now?


  1. Great progress on SK mermaid.

    Have a nice weekend!

  2. Your HAED is looking good! Good luck on parking threads, I can't make sens of that it always looks like an tangled mess!
