Here it is my " Pocket for a Mermaid"

And yes its a strong blue ! possibly a little darker in the real thing. The dye packet said sea blue and showed almost aqua in the picture. The linen is 40 count Permin and I found it very hard work doing the count thread stitches on it. The rest was sheer fun.

Here is a closer view, can you find the tiny sea horse charm, it came in an exchange packet from America last year and is just perfect for this piece.  And the little mermaid was an extra one made quite some time ago when I made some for the goodies bags at one of Caitlin's Birthday parties.

That is so sweet. I love all the little shells and the seahorse charm. And that mermaid is just adorable!

Just beautiful, Lee. I like the dark blue of this piece very much and all of the tiny shells and little treasures that you've adorned it with...
