My WIP today, is the letter J in this absolutely cutesy series of letters with mermaids. However, I am changing it quite a bit. Above, is an image of the original.

I am stitching this for a friend who is having a baby girl as her first child. The friend happens to like mermaids and has chosen the following colors for her nursery – coral, teal, and silver.

Letter J

Okay, so the picture of the fabric sucks but it is called Aphrodite. It is a pink purplish color that is an oplescent.  As you can see, I lightened the tail for a more pastel coral while I darkened the J to a teal.

Here are the color changes for anyone who is interested.  I switched Ora’s Iris for Ocean, Jelly Roll for Peacock, Cerise for Blue Topaz, Lobster Claw for Tangerine, and Candy Corn for Goldfish. I will provide a more detailed color conversion once I am finished.

Don’t forget it is Sit N’ Stitch night at Embroidery Central at 6 pm. Happy Stitching!
