Here's the first progress pic of HAED's Dreaming Mermaid...
I was really hoping to get the first page done before I go back to work on Monday, but there's so many colour changes that it's taking a lot more time than I anticipated.
Had a rough time with the Krenik, then decided to stitch the sparkles tent stitch instead and haven't looked back. It's not half as bulky now and it's really pleasant to stitch with. I use a slightly larger needle too which I think helps.
There's four full pages and two half pages (I think!) I'm really enjoying stitching her and how she's turning out.
