Little mermaid, 5

Well, my mermaid is ready for the hairdresser!  I finished stitching the sand in the diagonal mosaic.  Her flesh is stitched in basketweave/tent stitch.  Her cuff bracelet and armlet (?) are in the slanted gobelin in Balger gold metallic.  Her hairbow matches her bra.  I forgot to bring home some odds and ends of fibers--like the white metallic for her pearls and the colors for her eyes.  Oops!

I've started practicing on her hair.  Time will tell about those bullions.

  1. I hope your bullions pass muster for inclusion because I think it will be the perfect stitch!
