Mermaids {Cuteness Overload}

 
These pieces left this morning. For a special little girls' birthday.
 
Or Easter basket if her mama can wait that long. ;)

Each little water bubble has a bead and sequin sewn to it to catch the light.

I'm exhausted! Time to clean up the tornado that is all around me.

Creativity and a neat house rarely go hand-in-hand. 

But it is sew worth it, I think.

*sigh*
