Mermaid Heart Progress

I'm making good progress on Mermaid Heart, closely monitored by Rosie as she's decided that it's heading for her bedroom! I am really enjoying working on this one, particularly the Soie d'Alger silks.

I'm also almost keeping up with Plum Street Samplers SAL on Mary's Sampler. I'm currently working on part 6.

Mermaid Heart looks lovely, great progress!

I can see why Rosie would want Mermaid Heart for her very own--it is just lovely :) Nice progress on Mary's Sampler, too--I'm sure I'll stitch that myself one day.

Such a lovely project. And I can see why Rosie wants it for her bedroom.

I can see why Rosie would be after the Mermaid Heart - very pretty colours! Aren't silks the best?

Joanie said...

Oh! Rosie's got great taste!!! It's a beautiful piece, the colors are so pretty. Mary's sampler is looking good too.

I don't blame Rosie for wanting to snag that Mermaid hearts piece - so pretty and colorful. AVAS is my favorite solid colored silk. I am doing Mary II but am not as far along as you are. It's looking so cute ! Cheers Mel

Rosie has good taste:-) AVAS silks are my favourites to work with, they glide through the linen.
