The cross stitch crazy 2016 page on facebook is holding a series of SALs over the year, you could sign up up to as many or as little as you want. I signed up to their mermaid SAL and picked Little Mermaid by The Snowflower Diaries. I missed out on the first month as I was away so I started at the beginning of February but got carried away and have also finished it!

I started HMS Victory which is stitching up nicely, I have finished the water so it's now on to the hull which is probably the most complicated part as it's full of fractionals and horizontal/vertical stitches.
My fabric arrived from Colour Cascade Fabrics in Australia and they are beautiful. Unfortunately, the mystery chart I had intended for the pink on the right has a lot pink within the chart itself so I'll have to find another use for it.
Unfortunately when attempting to make the fabric on the left colourfast, a lot of the dye has come out so is now a deep pink. As it was meant for a year long project with white threads, I didn't want it to bleed. Never mind, you live and learn.
I better start on the next chart for the Daily Cross Stitch SAL...I love how HMS victory is stitching up though.
