Yay for Saturday mornings with no sport.
And a close up:
I did change out some beads, more because I had them to hand but they fit so well on this fabric. Everything is still Mill Hill.
16603 became 03016.
18828 became 00143 (happily the packet I didn’t use for Stargazer).
In the bubble trails from her fins, I used 00150 instead of silver and 00161 instead of 02010.
I do feel a little stupid in that she’s been sitting in a bag for a year, and it was only a week to get a finish!

She’s gorgeous! Well done on finally finishing her!
Wow!! She’s stunning!
Gorgeous work! Love the details, especially the beads!
Thank you Michelle!
So so SO amazing! Glorious colours, and those beads are simply magical ❤
This is so beautiful! Xstich is new to me and I started out with such a huge, demanding Scarlet Quince piece. I didn’t know you could incorporate beads and such! I’ll have to check out the craft store from some more projects!
Hey Christina! Start with something simple so you can experiment. Some people like to attach beads with a full cross, others with just half. Mill Hill have some good kits that will end up on your Christmas tree – it’s great to have visual as well as verbal encouragement!
Thank you! Yes, I’ve been inspired to make Christmas XStitch Cards by Jenna over at Life’s Complicated, so Cross Stitch… and now you’ve inspired me to get glitzy!! I’ll check out Mill Hill 😀
Jenna’s great at inspiration!
