Almost there...

Well, after thinking that my Mermaid wouldn't get finished by the end of the month, I'm on the last section.  All the stitching has been completed, and lots of beads have been added - I just have a lot of cream coloured beads to add to the 'froth' from her arms:


I'm already thinking that I'll move back to my Guardian Angel once this is finished...

Tom and I have decided to go on holiday on our own next year.  We are calling it our Honeymoon, since we haven't ever been on a proper holiday alone before (it will only be 21 years late!)  We have decided to go to New York City, as it is the main place that I have always wanted to go to (there are plenty of other places in the USA that we want to go to, but NYC is the closest, and we haven't been on a plane for longer than an hour before!).  We did want to book an apartment for a week, but I've been told by one of the landlords that there is a new law coming in to NYC, banning the rental of apartments for less than a month, so we will have to go to a hotel instead... You may wonder why we would want to go to a busy city for a holiday, rather than a sandy beach somewhere in the Med... Well, we hate beach holidays - we love sightseeing and going to different places to look at the culture and architecture, and lying on a beach somewhere would really drive us mad!

Have a good week, and Happy Stitching!

Your mermaid is looking fantastic, can't wait to see it all finished. I am very jealous about your trip to NY, it is somewhere I've always wanted to visit too :) Happy stitching.

I think a trip to NYC sounds fabulous! I could never live there because I love my rural county so much but it's great for 'tripping'.

Maureen said...

wow you've made great progress on your mermaid and a trip to NY just sounds great - would love to visit there one day.

Your mermaid looks stunning!
I'm a city girl and love to visit cities! There's always so much to see and so much to do. A vacation isn't a proper vacation unless you need a break after it!

Wow she is coming along beautifully Lynn.

Your "honeymoon" in New York sounds like it will be brilliant. That's one place I would love to see one day.
