Having spent today stitching, I can now see the end of the tunnel - there are not so many beads left to attach and only a little bit of backstitching....I'm so happy...
I still have to find the right beads to attach in the big blank bits in the torso. I'm hoping to find something right at the local bead shop...if all else fails...there's always ebay!!!
I'm really pleased with the half pearl beads in the bodice. The design calls for faceted floral amethyst beads, but I think this suits the mermaid theme better.
I've also finally got a photo of my boys - a scruffy pair - for the first day of school 2009. It is so hard to get them both with a happy face at the same time!!! This is Harry's last year at Primary School.
