finally more progress!

Work and other RL things have been cutting in to stitchy time, but I finally have enough to warrant an update. :)

As you can see, I'm dangerously close to the edge here. :( I thought the fabric was 32 count, and it's actually 28 count... and the design would have had only about 1.25 inches left on either side on the 32 count. So now I'm stuck with even less. I'm not sure how I'm going to frame her when I'm done. I may cave and take her to a framer this time instead of doing it myself as usual, because there is just NO room for error here.

Bah. Anyway, even though I'm beading, she's still missing her tail fin! I'm changing it from green to grey because I saw one with that modification and liked it a LOT more than the green tail. Even though green is my favorite color. :p

well, she has a head now!

Okay, this is taking longer than I thought...

But to be fair, I didn't really do any stitching during the week, and yesterday was a slow day for stitching as well. I was hoping to finish all the stitching this weekend, but that may not work out. Hmm.
