Not much new here - some more Colonial knots and Satin Stitch plus a little bit of Padded Satin Stitch for the eye (mostly hidden by the bead) and some French Knots for the coronet (I just looked up what the sticky out bit on top of the head is called)!
I had got my Shisha mirrors out ready to stitch some next but I hadn't thought about putting one in the middle of the starfish - thanks for the idea Gina! I have some teeny weeny ones - will just have to see if I can manage to stitch one in the centre.
The lace wouldn't colour with transfer paints so I presume it was acrylic or something and I was never really happy with the colours achieved with fabric paints so it's gone. Another task now - cover that seam!
