Hello! My name is Deborah/Lavender Rose (http://lavenroseramblings.blogspot.com/) and I'm a hopeful new member of the Group. I'm hoping I'll be able to give a head and a tail to my poor Mermaid of the Pearls!
Pearls was started in 2006....: I have a picture of how far I got by April of 2007, but it's too sad to show here. I've been putting the beads and metallics in as I stitch, which is just the way I learned to stitch as a needlepointer. It's easiest for me.
My intention is to finish her in 2010 for my daughter, Jessica, who reminds me several times a year that she'd really like Pearls finished since I promised her to Jess years ago!!! To that goal, I pledge to stitch on her every other Saturday for 1 hour, at least.
I think the problem that's held me back is that I made a mistake somewhere on the body section and I just don't want to take the whole thing out!! So I have to work around it, now. I mean the body of the tail section. Hopefully, I can find the error and at least find a way to salvage it.
Thanks for your support in this. Pearls really needs you and so do I.
I also pledge to give you all the support I can by comments and being faithful to keep my end of the bargain up. Your work inspires me..... so please don't give up on yourself and your lovely projects. :)
PS: I want to thank every single one of you who've commented and encouraged me to keep going with "Pearl." Thanks, also, for your kind welcome to the Group. I'm going to stitch on her tonight! Tuesday, 8.4.09 :]
