Mermaids

Attack of the Frog!

First I have to share my progress on Emerald Mermaid and then I will explain my title.  So here is where I am on Emerald since starting her on January 1, 2013:

progress on Emerald Mermaid 1

She is coming along beautifully.  I love all of the colors in her.  But this piece sure has had some challenges.  Mainly the fabric.  Here is my latest mishap with the fabric:

Attack of the frog!

Do you see that hole to the right of the frog?  Yep, the frog did it!  He is my magnet that holds my needle when I am not using it.  When I scrolled up my fabric last week to continue stitching, I forgot to move him and yes…I rolled right over him and he poked a hole right in the fabric 😦  I will take some matching thread and do some whip stitching over it and hope that it will be ok.  I think it is far enough to the right that it will be hidden behind the frame.  I want to have her framed the same exact size as Mediterranean Mermaid, but if I have to go a little smaller to hide my mistake, I will.  So, I had a visit from a frog of a different kind.  I didn’t have to tear out stitches, but I  did get a tear in my fabric.  For some reason, I am not sure I was meant  to do Emerald on this fabric.  I probably should have gone with a beautiful Hand dyed piece from Stephanie, but this is the fabric that I had originally purchased for her so I wanted to use it up.  Let’ s  see if I can get to the end without any more mishaps 🙂  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.

  1. Oh Ginny, I would have been in tears! I hope you can get the mishap corrected. Is it in a place where other stitches will hide it? No matter…it is looking great!

    1. I was almost in tears, Sue. But this fabric has not been very cooperative from the beginning. I do think that it will be close enough to the side that it might just be hidden by the frame or even wrapped around the back of the board. Keep fingers crossed for me 🙂
