Close…soooo close

Emerald Mermaid

Well, I didn’t finish her while on vacation, but you can see I’m definitely close.  A few more leaves and flowers and then a boatload of beads and she’ll be done!  Definitely before the end of the year 🙂

Back to work this past week and I actually spent all of it in my own cube!  No travelling between buildings, no spending all of my hours (60-70 at least) on a single project and actually working on things for my own job.  It was great!  DH also chauffeured me a couple of days so I even got some knitting done on the commute.  I also learned of a vanpool that runs relatively close to my house (not as convenient as the express bus I used to take downtown, but not too bad) so for $10/week I can take that and go back to enjoying a book or a bit of knitting to and from work (and be assured of getting in and out at a reasonable time).

Two more four-day work weeks and I’m done until January 3rd.  I can’t hardly wait….

    Love your mermaid Annette. I am new to reading your blog so my question to you is what fabric are you stitiching her on?
