OK, so it’s meant to be the peasant fantasy, but there was a little gap that was just perfect for a mermaid, and medieval embroidery does abhor negative space, so here she is.

I love her. I especially love the fact that she has saggy tits and a muffin top.

Being peasants this fantasy is meant to be woolier than the last, but even slightly droopy bosomed mermaids needs a spot of sparkle, and so she is silky, with some green metallic twist that was a gift from Brenda. It may not show on the photo but there’s also a nice textural interaction between the silk and wool.

I am rather kicking myself for not giving her a selfie stick instead of the mirror, but I’d already drawn the mirror in permanent fabric pen.

I have done kits of her, but only about half a dozen, they’re on the shop for now, but once they’re gone they’re gone. I really did them as a special for harrogate next weekend and I’m not sure I’ll do them again because they were a bit of a faff to assemble
