Mermaid Embroidery Part One

I am starting a new stitching project.  The motif I will be working on features a beautiful mermaid and her sweet dolphin friend.  This motif is from the Sea Myths embroidery pattern.

There are so many floss and color decisions to make! What colors do you consider as mermaid colors?  I am thinking along the lines of the palette below {notice the two spools of sparkly blending filament}

I started with an easy decision - this green perle cotton floss for the mermaid's tail.  This is DMC number 988.   

I will be recording all the details of this project in my Embroidery Journal and keeping you up to date on my progress here on the blog.
