Small SAL--August Mermaid

The moment keen readers have been waiting for! Just which piece was I able to zip through so I could get back to that handsome bearded fellow from the arctic?

"In the Pink" is a breast cancer awareness piece from Elegant Stitch. It was designed by Midsummer Night Designs, and it sold out before I could sign up. But someone--and I've lost track of who at this point--sent it to me. I started it last year for the Smalls SAL but only got halfway through.

This piece is very pink, stitched on "Awareness Pink" from R&R. (I couldn't get the fabric to photograph well.) It's stitched over one, and so the eyes look like crazy bug eyes.

I think I got this because my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer around the time it came out. Of course, it has been out for ages; happily, my aunt is cancer free. Maybe I'll give it to her anyway. They say it's the thought that counts.

If you were the person who sent me the kit instead of stitching it yourself, please feel free to give yourself madprops in the comments, and I'll right this half-assed post.

Linking up with Heather of Stitching Lotus who hosts the Smalls SAL.

Nice finish. Isn't it good to finish something started a while ago? I think I'm going to make a list of almost finished projects....

I don't remember this one, but it's a cutie! Love the over one look. Your aunt will love it and I'm so glad to hear she is cancer free!

Way to go on getting this one finished! I think your aunt (happy to hear she is cancer free) will enjoy it. Have a wonderful weekend!

She'll love it - take it from another survivor. It's a great little stitch.

Cute finish and quite suitable for your Aunt as it doesn't shout Cancer at you, just a lovely pink themed design with a good message.

I like it too, and your aunt would be delighted with it, she is in the pink of health now.
