A new start

....because I can't finish a Mirabilia without starting one of the many others I have lined up.   But you knew that.

I started Queen Mermaid last weekend.   The fabric is Sterling Silver from Silkweaver, which is a very muted pattern hand dyed in a lovely silvery-blue-grey color.  I really love it for this project, which is a good thing because I'll also be doing Deepest Love on the same fabric at some point.

There's quite a bit of metallics on her (as with most of the mermaids) so I went ahead and ordered those because there's only so much I can stitch "around" where they need to go.   Should be here shortly.
