A Mermaid’s Tale – Introducing….. the Girls!

Well, I am fairly happy with them as a whole. Some more than others….but I guess I’m allowed to have favorites. Each block is 16 inches wide by 20 inches tall.  I plan on a non-straight kind of oceany sashing. Still debating if I will order white silk and dye it? My dying silk sometimes consists of me using it for a sponge and different dyes….I do love surprises when it comes to dying ribbon and fabric. Probably won’t even tackle the sashing until Christmas time. I still have two of the ladies unembellished and so will have to get them all done before I can decide what exactly I want to do when I put it together. The octopus is the center block…that is decided.They could all use a little more seaweed….maybe more little fishies.

It was mentioned to me that their TA-TAs may be a problem with showing. Might be considered offensive. I thought maybe I would present it to the show committee and see how they feel. Attendees may not like it. So….the burning question is: Do I break out the sequins and make them all bras? What do you think?

STUPENDOUS and highly imaginative.

It is absolutely beautiful. I agree that some people do get upset by the weirdest things, so you are probably right to go to the judging committee first. If you put those sequins on, make them removeable. I love the free-flowing, underwater feeling this piece gives.
