Design: Shimmering Mermaid
Designer/Source: Nora Corbett/Mirabilia
Website: www.mirabilia.com
Fabric: 32 ct. Lugana   Color: ?? a sort of medium teal, more green than blue
Floss: DMC, chart-indicated, over 2
Started: sometime in 2006; had looong stretches of no progress
Finished: 11 Jan 2009
Size: chart-indicated
Goofs: yes, at least two that I remember, not design-impairing; one stands out more than the other. Doh.
Purpose: decorative
Notes: The compass was a pain while using transparent thread, then I wised up and switched to a thread practically the same color as the fabric. I think trans. thread would not be as much of a pain on darker shaded fabric; unless I was in spots like her hair/fin/body where there weren't expanses of no other stitches, it was hard to keep track of where I'd beaded with the trans thread.
Available? No - Mine!
