IHSW - March 2014

I was so into adjusting the colors of my Mermaid's hair yesterday that I totally forgot to post my IHSW pictures.  I started this design a week ago Sunday, the Sea Goddess by Joan Elliott. On Saturday I had a glitch in my brain because I had lost the ability to count correctly and I ended up stitching and frogging her face about three times before I gave up and moved to her torso, which of course I ended up doing the same thing at least once before I could get it right. Finally everything started coming back together and I got that part done.  I then went back and stitched her face but then I had to decide, since I had changed the skin tone, what color to stitch her hair.  I with the help of my lovely daughter found the perfect shades of brown instead of the red in the chart.
Saturday night
Sunday night
This where I left off last night and it is now time to make more little xxs.  I want to thank you all for stopping by.

I sympathize with you! I have days where I just can't get it right! But it's coming along beautifully and good on ya for attempting to change colors (I'm so terrified to do that, but have been tempted more than once).

Absolutely stunning. I hate when I find I just can't get something right but you did the right thing in moving onto something else. I always find that helps.
