6.02 Bella Vita Conversion

While she is a beautifully simple little mermaid, I must admit, Bella Vita's colours sucked ass.  They just did nothing for me, and as such were drastically changed.

She went from this:
                                             Bella Vita - Cross Stitch Pattern

to this:




Yeah.  Just a 'small' change.

Stitched 2 over 2, on Chromatic Alchemy's 'Poseidon', 32 count belfast opal.

Changes as follows - (Original - new)
TAIL
166 - 3809
580 - 3808
732 - 3808
772 - 3811
3819 - 3810

RIBBON
500 - 154
958 - 333
959 - 3746
964 - 156
991 - 550

HAIR
420 - 3823
838 - 3820
839 - 3822
3371 - 3829

Skin, and white stayed the same.
I also did her backstitch in 632, not the original 3799

Beads were : 42031 - 02085 (hair)
                                 - 10079 (tail)

Honestly, if I do her again, I'll switch her colours around - so purple tail, and green ribbon.  But that was something I decided after I was too far in for me to be bother un-picking stitches and redoing it (At that point I had already unpicked around 200 stitches and I wasn't doing it again).  Maybe for next time?
She IS a very simple stitch to do, and definitely on my redo list.
