cross stitch piece took me a few weeks, and no wonder - it turned out
pretty large! I’m not sure if you can tell, but the waves each have five
or six different shades of blue, which took a lot of close counting and
concentration. I don’t do large projects like this often, but when I
do, I love how beautiful they are.
The poem below the mermaid is taken from Yeats’ “A Man Young and Old” - it’s part III.
