More Mermaids September 29, 2008

I have been diligently and exclusively stitching on Mermaids of the Deep Blue for over a week now. I am almost finished with the first mermaid. I think I will be able to finish her tonight and start on the other mermaid beside her. This is such a pretty delicate looking piece. I am loving every single stitch. Normally I can’t stitch on one piece for days on end, but this one has really caught my attention.

And as I am stitching I am debating on which Mirabilia I want to stitch next. I am thinking maybe another mermaid like Shimmering Mermaid or Emerald Mermaid…or perhaps a fairy like Fairy Flora…I have fabric and some of the beads to start Winter Queen…decisions, decisions. I am hoping to have this finished or be very close by next weekend. Next weekend we are going for a little family getaway. I am looking so forward to shopping at the cross stitch store there.

On a complete other topic, I have been researching Amazon’s Kindle. I am thinking I would like to have one of these for Christmas. I think it would be so neat to buy a book anytime and be able to read anywhere you are without having to carry a heavy book with you. Anyone out there in blogland have one of these and would like to share your opinions with me on the subject?
