Thinking of mermaids today

Isn't this just the greatest mermaid that you have seen? I love it. I found it on pinterest and have just started stitching it, so thought you might also like it. I guess that moving back to Vancouver Island has gotten me back to thinking of all things related to the sea and myths of it. It is wonderful to wake up and sit on the porch, with the smells and sounds of the ocean around me. Today there was a congregation of Blue Herons fishing just offshore and yesterday, the Ravens were absolutely terrorizing a bald headed eagle. The eagles make some very cool sounds when they are annoyed with the other birds. I wonder sometimes, why such a big bird tolerates the smaller birds and does not just go after them. Instead, patience seems to be their approach. 
I have been working so much lately that it has seriously cut into my time to blog, stitch and sew. So, I hope that everyone is well and if you like to crochet, please check out my pinterest along the side of the blog and also my needlework board of pins. Some amazing stuff out there and I want to do all of it, but I of course do not have that many lifetimes available to me - pity. 

Have a great rest of the day ......
