For the last 12 weeks I have been stitching mostly on one project. That project is Mermaid Perfume by Mirabilia. In one of my previous posts, I was working on her tail.
Since then I have finished that massive tail. So much green!
Just look at that tail!!! I love it! And I am so happy to be finished with all of that green! And then, in no time, she had a face and some hair.
How sweet is her face? It was so nice to finally get to some other colors besides green. And last night I finished all of the cross stitching. So just back stitching and beads left to do.
I am stitching her on 16ct Aida Hidden Cove by Sunny Dyes Fabrics/Youthful Needle Crafts. I cannot wait to unroll the scrolls and see all of her on this beautiful hand painted fabric. The suspense is killing me! When I saw this fabric in the Design and Fabric Viewer, I knew it was going to be perfect for a mermaid. What? You haven’t heard of the Design and Fabric Viewer? This is a site where you can pair certain designer patterns onto certain fabrics listed in the viewer. It is a great resource for cross stitcher’s to see what a particular design will look like on a certain fabric. If you haven’t played in the Viewer, you definitely should give it a try. You have to create an account before starting, and you can save up to 3 images for FREE. Subscribing to the site will allow you to save more images and it also gives you the option to save your personal fabrics onto your account so you can pair images on the fabrics you have in your stash. Give it a try! And if you haven’t tried it in quite some time, it has changed so you’ll want to see what it looks like now. Go, try it out!
So that is what I have been stitching on. I am excited to get to the beading on Mermaid Perfume. Hopefully soon, I will have a finish to share with you. What are you stitching on today?

I am sure I used to follow your blog but it’s not in my Reader so I have a bit of catching up to do!
Love your mermaid, that tail is awesome.
I also love the Viewer, one of my favourite resources. I hope Dana can keep it running.
I seemed to have lost some blogs in my Reader also. WP is always changing and I have trouble keeping up 😉 Glad you found me again and do hope that you enjoy reading my posts.
That mermaid tail seemed to take me forever! But it turned out fabulous!
I too hope that the Viewer will continue. I love using it. too.
My fellow Mermaid Lover! I love to swim! I was a life guard in Chicago for 3 summers at Oak Street Beach. My Dad taught me..before I could walk, and called me his Mermaid. My husband also calls me Mermaid. I have so many Mermaid items that I, my kids, and friends have bought. I have been stitching since I was 18 . Now, I am 69! When I saw all your stitched Mermaids, I knew you were my sister! Love you..and this Blog!
Awwww! You are sweet, my mermaid sister. I didn’t learn to stitch until I was about 25. A coworker taught me and I will be forever grateful. I am glad you are enjoying my blog. Thank you for visiting ❤
Love your Mermaid Perfume! I have been trying to not buy anymore patterns , till I get 3 projects finished. You…and your postings are making me feel I should add this to the list! Wonderful! You made her face sooo beautiful!
I know what you mean about trying to restrict yourself. I was doing well and working on WIP’s, trying to get them finished before starting new ones. The Dark Queen was a SAL, so I justified that one. But then Mermaid Perfume came out and I could not resist starting her. And I have stitched exclusively on her for the last 12 1/2 weeks. I can’t wait to get her finished. She does have a sweet face 😉
Love that tail.
Thank you, Marilyn. That tail was a lot of work, but it was well worth it. I love it, too ❤
