Cruising Along on Mermaid of Atlantis
That said - the Mermaid is finished stitching, except for the backstitching and beading, which is fairly exciting! I still need to do the borders. I started the scrollwork at the bottom, then there's the shell/fish motifs and the frame.
I am going to be working on her solidly until she's complete now. I'm jonesing for a big finish, plus I'd love to start one of the new projects I have lined up.
The only think I'm concerned with is that I'm starting to run low on one of the Waterlilies (Espresso), which is supposed to be used for the outside border. I may use Umbria instead (one of the other Waterlilies used on MoA) since I seem to have a lot of that left and it would still look really nice.
There's not a ton of backstitching but there's a LOT of beads to go on yet.
