After two years, working off and on, this mermaid is DONE! I am not sure yet how I want to frame her, and she needs one last trip to the ironing board. But I am so glad I stuck with this project and was able to complete it. And now I think I need a break from stitching for a while, and then a nice, simple project when I get back into it!
The beadwork was pretty intense, but sooooo worth it!
The camera can’t do justice to the gold and silver metallic threads.
