This was going to be…

a much better post. But I’m sick with what feels like 2 lbs of razor edged snot in my chest. Nothing else is wrong besides that, I guess I’ll count that as a win.

I was sitting around thinking the other day (hey, it happens) and I thought I’ve been such a good girl. All my June work is complete, why don’t I do what I want instead of maybe getting a jump on July.

And me being me… Well, let me say I had honest intentions. I had to make an order at a ONS because I needed some threads and beads for current/going to be current projects. And I already had most of the stuff for it… I bought Mediterranean Mermaid. Bad me, when I feel better I’ll have dh spank me for it.

I’ve named her Eudora:

I’m stitching her on 25ct. Stormy Seas lugana from Polstitches. Obviously I am beading as I go. I have two things to say: yay! beads don’t crowd on 25ct & metric ass-ton of beads.

Two other quickies, my WNRR “Warrenville” came home today. I have to add one last house and a border of some sort and I’m super happy with it. Thanks to everyone who stitched on it! And the Fair & Square July 4th squares I stitched arrived at their new home. Both are from Brightneedle. I changed the sig square’s color to match the colonial gal.

    Call it a pooping fish if you like but I really think the jug/jar/vase/whatever it is is really pretty. It looks awesome with all of the beads! The blues are so pretty, too…gah, now I want this one!

    She’s super pretty, Missy! I love her on Stormy Seas! 🙂

    I really like your new start and your cute July 4th things, but all I can think of is that girl in the convent in Monty Python’s “Holy Grail” movie squealing, “Oh, yes, spankings, spankings!” Am I twisted or what??

    Beads…so…pretty!! I’ve seen this one around and thought, “She isn’t much…”, but here she looks stunning! You must be doing a great job. 😉

    I love your start on the Mermaid. Can’t wait to see more of your progress on this one. I’m like you and bead as I go on those designs. I hate going back and trying to finish up something or beading all at the same time. Love your patriotic designs too!

    I really like the Mermaid too. I have to admit to thinking the vase was a fish the very first time I saw the model pic, but never imagined the “pooping” part til others started saying it. I think yours looks a lot more like a vase and it is coming along beautifuly.

    One thing I wondered about it being able to be displayed both vertical and horizontal: Won’t that mess up the way those crystal teardrops lay if you hang it vertical? Looks like you are going horizontal anyway – but I’m toying with the idea of going vertical with mine (you know one day when I start it after all the other things I’m gonna start) and wondered if that would be an issue.

    It all looks beautiful! Your fabric for Eudora is really perfect. I have looked up and down for the chart for that little colonial gal with the flag and can’t find her.. Where can I get her? Thanks! 🙂

  8. Eudora is coming along nicely. Nothing wrong with rewarding yourself. have your DH spank you if you want, but I’m sayin’ that’s voluntary. 😉 Great fabric choice.

    Warrenville turned out really cute! Another great fabric choice. And the colonial gal is really sweet. Good stitching, my friend!
