Theme-a-licious Check In - Opulent October

As I said in my last Theme-a-licious post I didn't have an existing wip that fit this months criteria, so I just had to start something new.  The project I chose was Just Nan's Mermaid Heart - beads, charms, blending filament and luscious silks. Very opulent.

Rosie has already decided that this one is for her, so I need to crack on and get it stitched!

However my main focus for this month is Juda Hale in Miniature,  I am on track to meet my goal of getting this one stitched by the end of the month.

And of course I could resist starting Mary's Sampler from Plum Street Samplers.  Here it is with the first two parts stitched.

Your projects all look great, Karoline.

They're all lovely WIPs - I can see how the Just Nan would appeal to a lovely little girl :-)
Lovely vibrant colours, you do like your Just Nan designs Karoline.
