Two Mermaids

 Hi Everyone,

Well I can´t but feel a bit more enthusiastic  this week as my husband, my son and I are off to visit my daughter and grandkids next week.  They live in Madrid, a four hour journey from the north coast of Spain and we haven´t seen them for nearly a year.  So with making plans and such I still haven´t regained my sewing mojo but I have finished  a couple of UFOs.

I made lots of little mermaid pouches years ago more or less when I started blogging and as I still had some remaining fabric, last year I started to embroider more mermaids. but I couldn´t finish them completely until I bought more metal clasps.


These two mermaids are the same color and practically mirror images, I just add a few threads of coloured flowers as I go along and don´t use a pattern, so the embroideries are similar but all different, some have beads and others sequins. 

A smattering of embroidery on the reverse sides and more beads to decórate the clasps


 and  some soft pretty coloured satin for the linings.



I received two pretty cross stitch patterns from June of Butterfly Wings this week and am going to start one  right away and see if my enthusiasm returns. Thank you June.  I´m taking the pattern with me to Madrid next week.

Until next week

Sheryl

  11. Well, aren't these just the prettiest, Sheryl! So glad you finished them up--I can't get over the fact that you designed these without a pattern and love the idea that each one is a bit different...

    I know you are counting the hours til you see your daughter and grandchildren again. Have a safe trip and enjoy every minute ♥
