Mermaid Cushion, Good Mail Day

Back in May, Joy@Days Filled with Joy  with her daughter as the artist had a mermaid-stitch-a-long.  I haven't had a chance to stitch on mine until several days ago.  I decided it would make a perfect gift for my dear sister-in-law who loves mermaid and all things ocean like I do.  So I embroidered one of my  mermaids.


I decided to make her into a cushion.  I added fringe, though it is hard to tell.  I really have trouble with lighting in my house, and I even took it outside, and that was too bright, and too hot (102 today).  I  decided to use a lighthouse backing, as both my brother and sister-in-law love lighthouses,as I do.

Last month, I was featured on Wednesday Wait Loss here  on the Inquiring Quilter, and I also happened to win the Island Batik Stash Builder Roll, which arrived today.  Love the colors, and will have to think of a special project.  Thanks so much Jennifer!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Karrin

The colors of the fabric you won look like they would be a perfect match for an ocean theme project like the mermaid you showed. I look forward to seeing where inspiration leads you.

Beautiful batiks! It's lovely to see Joy's and Elizabeth's mermaids popping up on blogs I enjoy. Your cushion is a really wonderful addition to any room.
