All the stitching is done, including the crazy amount of over one (seriously, I need to do over one skin on girls who just have their faces and hands showing, not mermaids! :p) and the backstitching. I gave her a wash to get the stitches plumped back up again, which works wonders.
Unfortunately, it takes forever to dry, even with a hot iron, so beading and the metallic net will have to wait until tomorrow...
The colors aren't too accurate on this one.
Had some shadows from the sunset messing things up here. :)
This closeup is much more accurate to the actual colors!
I'll probably sub some of the beads... there's a lot of size 6 beads in this design and I don't like using anything that big. Size 8 is my limit, otherwise they tend to fall over or get loose over time, and that drives me nuts!
Siiiigh. I really wanted to start beading today. :p
