And some beading closeups!
Yeah, definitely glad I didn't attempt this on Belfast!
And my usual bit of info!
Crafty Kitten - Sunset Garden (Cashel/28ct)
Changed all blended threads to single DMC colors:
167/676 becomes 729
335/3860 becomes 316
356/758 becomes 3778
772/927 becomes 524
3607/3609 becomes 3608
3609/3860 becomes 223
I also changed 844 (black triangle) to different colors depending on the area stitched:
469 in the seaweed
3768 in the tail and green/pale fins
(kept as 844 in the back/pink fins)
Aside from that, my only other changes were doing the skin over-one and the usual recharting to smooth out the transitions between the skin colors. Oh, and a few small bead substitutions, like I didn't want any of the yellow-green beads in her hair, so I replaced them with other bead colors that were already used in her hair. Basic stuff like that. :)
All in all, a pleasure to stitch and bead! Loved every moment. :)
