Legends of these half-human, half-fish humanoids have circulated for millennia, even as far back as 5000 BC. I love the way mermaids' tails 'sparkle like diamonds and emeralds [and] their hair flows around them like veils of silk.'

Show & Tell
Mermaids of the Deep Blue Sea (MoDBS)
What you have here are two examples of colour.
The green is the designer's choice. The blue is mine.
Here you can see the blue in detail. I'm still not 100% sure about it, but in my opinion it's a vast improvement on the two first attempts using the designer's choice of colour.
What do you think? Tell me even if you don't like it.

Queen of the Sea
It still needs a wash, and probably the removal of excess Labrador Retriever 'specialty fibres', but here it is in all its glory. I'm so very pleased with it!
Thanks Joan for making it possible.
Thank you everyone in the cross stitch blogworld for your wonderful encouragement! I would never have started, let alone finished it without your egging me on.
Hugs, happiness & laughter to one and all,
