PLEASE can I have this one Mummy?
Little Miss Katie actually swooned when she laid eyes on this finished mermaid...
Maybe it was the blonde hair (well, yellow gingham really) or the pink highlights... the pink bikini... or that perfect curlicue tail. Whatever it was - it was LOVE at first sight!
Of course she begged me to let her keep it - and I had to be the mean Mum who said no.
So we agreed instead, that one day I would make one to her exact request... and in the meantime I taught her to make curlicues herself - which took her mind off the heartache for a little while, at least!
