Happier with my mermaid now

After taking several suggestions into consideration, I decided to backstitch all of her skin where it met with the background fabric. I consulted my trusty (and very old) DMC floss guide (sorted by color family), and chose one shade darker, so it would not stand out much but give just a teensy bit more definition. I'm pleased with the results.

Oh yes, and I added her eyebrow and lash backstitching - it was charted, I just hadn't stitched it until today.
