One day, The Hermit was with me when I was in my LNS (now closed) and was flicking through the charts as I chatted to Maureen, and had some fabbie cut. He admired several of the Mirabilia mermaid charts and as he doesn't often ask for me to make him stuff, I rashly said I would stitch him a mermaid ... and he picked this one ...
This is probably one of the biggest guilt magnets in my UFO piles because it is for my best-beloved. He does have several pieces I've done for him, but this was one *he* chose...
One day, it may look like this - you can see how much I have to do...
- It's for The Hermit
- It's on linen
- It's not blue
- There's a lot of work to do
- Beading and metallic threads
- Size for handling
So - Finish or Fling?
Verdict: Finish. Although possibly not this year!
