We have no Mermaid things at our house.
So, 6pm lastnight out comes the bag of fabric scraps... blue satin lining from an old skirt I had, a silver tank top I never had the courage to wear in public, green felt left over from gluing felt squares on the feet of my dining table chairs,....then I sew til midnight and this morning the son of an artist (alias slow tired tortoise mother) is an ecstatic Mermaid, and I mean crazy happy.
Mermaid successfully delivered to a kindy full of whirling colourful characters, I am back in my studio finishing the shading on 2 fantail paintings (will post pictures up when they're finished - hopefully very soon!)
Coffee and cake will hopefully give me the zing I need to power through my work today (any excuse!). An angel (you know who you are) left that wee birdy coffee cup as a gift on my front gate one evening - really love it!!
Must fly! Bird wings to tint....
