School Proms and Stitching

My youngest daughter has her Y11 'Prom' in two weeks, and we went to the dress shop to pick up her dress yesterday.  She loved this dress the moment she saw it, and she couldn't wait to bring it home!

I've also been stitching on my Mermaid this week.  I've managed to complete her face and hair, so will be moving on to the tail over the weekend.

I'm going to leave the large bead and Kreinik braid area that is on the upper body area until the end. 

I'm also going to have a go with the GOS Challenge and the Stitch and Stash Monthly Challenge this month - it will motivate me to make up some of my finished designs!

I'll hopefully post another update on Sunday...

Happy Stitching!
