Why have I been so quiet?

I haven't blogged. I haven't Facebooked. I haven't "chatted". I have barely stuck my nose out the door of my house.
Every spare minute I have had for the last few weeks I have been beading. And here's what it is all about.


Passione Ricamo 2013 Mystery on 32 count Mermaid's Sea lugana from Under the Sea Fabrics. I think there are almost 2000 beads on this piece and I didn't do them until all the stitching was done. My hands and elbows are very sore. But, SHE IS DONE!





 I hope to have a review of this years finishes in my next post.

Your mermaid is so awesome! Your fabric is awesome and really shows off her beauty. I have recently picked mine back up and will hopefully work on her until she is finished.
