Mermaids Done

Well finally the mermaids are done. My back is still a bit twingy but better. Before my back issues I was creating full force but now have slacked off to almost nothing. I had to really push to get the mermaids done. They are completely different than I originally imagined them. I think I like them but mostly am relieved that they are done.
Just quick shots in my studio. Each is similar but different. I usually sew on all the details before stuffing the piece but since these were originally prototypes I had to do the details after.
 Each has a seahorse that has been beaded on the large part of the tail.
All the felt details have been beaded also. I'm loving czech glass beads right now. You can't see the details well but they really are much nicer in person.
They can be posed many different ways.
My favorite is the blue one. I think she's the prettier one. Once I get better photos these two will be available in my shop. Well I'm off to push myself to work on the witches that have been standing around waiting for me.

OMGOSH! I love them :) They are so beautiful and full of Magic :)
You have put so much detail into them!
I am so sorry to hear of your back issues.
I pinched a nerve once in my back and that was enough for me.. I never realized how much discomfort that could bring to a person.

sending prayers and positive thoughts your way for a quick and FULL recovery :)

They are so pretty! I love the starfish on their tails. :) You have so much detail (and TIME) in these lovelies. Can't wait to see your witches! xox Pam

Oh well done - I like the blue best too, more tardissy ;-)
I like the way they can be positioned, especially the leaning forward on the elbows pose - and the way the tail looks almost as if they have their legs crossed. Clever!

I agree with Heather, I like that pose too. I hope you are feeling better. Take it slow.
I can't wait to see the witches though! :D - Cindi
