Mermaid from Copenhagen…

Hej (Hello in Danish) my readers and new followers,

Hope you had a fruitful weekend. I was busy stitching away the Mermaid from Copenhagen. I’m happy with the turnout and how the design looked.

I’ve yet tackle the sailboats and the out-line yet. Please watch this space for more updates.
But, ~phew, it was really really Hard Work!

I better put up a picture for you to see.

This is my first time doing an even-weave piece. And I’ve read somewhere that said that if you’ve tried even-weave, you will not be doing Aida cloth again.
Well as for me,  photo cutecolorsanibear3.gifI’m not sure about this though, cos’ when I was shopping for even-weave cloth at my local craft shop, I nearly fainted. I cannot believe that a meter of even-weave  28-count cost SGD$60 per meter. That is like 30 pounds/USD$48. Gosh.. I think if I want to do cross stitch on even weave, which I will, I got to get the cloth from internet.

Oh and if you are keen to join the giveaway… One more day till closing date.. Have fun and good luck!

  1. Your mermaid is looking great. I have stitched on many fabrics over the years and I am an Aida girl. I love 16ct Aida. I get enough coverage and I am not going crazy trying to see. And I definitely like the price 🙂

    • yup.. i agreed with you on the price of Aida cloth. Here in Singapore, I can get pretty good price for Aida, usually cost about SGD$18-20 for a Meter of Aida, but not evenweave..But it had been an interesting experience so far..

      I still have a long way before the piece is completed.. There are still some boats and seaview to stitch.. Will post more updates soon.
