Mermaid of the Pearls progress

I've not spent as much time on my Mermaid as I would have liked this week, but have virtually finished the fin with beads and braid, and have started on the upper body:


Both Rachel and Steven are now back at Uni, so we have a quiet house back!  Sammy seems calmer - I think she had reached the point of overexposure with her sister, as they had been snapping at each other.

I'm still trying to come to terms with my 'illness', as I feel like I'm perfectly fine, until I hear from school or have any sort of worry...That's when I can tell I'm 'ill', as I can feel my heart racing and I start shaking.  Oh well...I have six weeks at home, so I'll just try to relax and make the most of the time by doing some stitching and sorting the house out!

I know how you feel Lynn having been there and still get the odd lapse, take one day at a time there is light at the end of the tunnel believe me.
Oh the fabric you are using looks gorgeous and the colours are fabulous.
