A Finish -Mermaids by Country Cottage Needleworks

Miss Hannah turns two years old in a few weeks so earlier in the month I thought I'd better make a start on her birthday cross stitch.

So here's Mermaids by Country Cottage Needleworks, which I finished during the week, please excuse the wrinkles :)

I'm debating whether or not to replace the french knots on the mermaids' necklaces to beads? Umm, will think on that :)

Very cute finish! I tend to substitute beads for french knots quite often. I just hate doing those knots!

Oh so cute - perfect for Miss Hannah!

Amanda said...

So cute! I think beads would look great for their necklaces if you do decide to change them!

Very pretty and a lovely gift for Hannah. I think I like the idea of the beads as it is a necklace.

It's lovely! I can't believe Hannah is nearly two already :)

I also think beads would be good, as they're for necklaces.

Very pretty and the fabric colour is gorgeous. Beads will look lovely and will catch the light giving that shimmering mermaid look - lucky, luckh Hannah xxx

A lovely finish.

Perfect fabric for the design. I think beads would make it more sparkly, but whatever you choose, it's still a great piece!
