Ana vs. The Mermaid

Woke up yesterday to a gawd awful headache due to sinus pressure. I could not concentrate on anything for very long, and I really did need a break from the Letter B fairy. I promise I will get back to her, but I really did need a break from fairies. She's not 'due' until almost September anyway :D.  As consequence, I began Bluebeard's Princess,  however, I had to stop shortly after, as the smaller holes were straining my eyes a bit with the headache that I had. Soooooo...out came Ana, a Bewitching Pixie, by the esteemed Nora Corbett. She's turning out very well, and I got quite a bit of the DMC 310 out of the way. :)

Well, at any rate, here are my Nora Corbett ladies, with their requisite pertinents.  :)

I have no idea of what I am going to do about the beadwork on a 40 count. I am in search of beads small enough, but I do not know if I will be able to find them and if they will be the correct colors. Ah, well. I will cross that bridge when I get to it! :)

Welp, I best be off. Need to clean off the desk and decide which of the ladies gets attention for the day. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! :)
