It's done, it's done!! In the end, I didn't add as many beads as I thought I would. I think I was just tired ... very happy with the result, though.
If you're interested, look back a few posts to see the three challenge fabrics. Mine won't be in competition of course, since it is a challenge offered by my store, but I wanted to participate. The entrants still have one month to go until their due date and then I will have some more interesting interpretations to show off. Here's one detail photo.
"Technical" information: all of the embroidery was done with three strands of embroidery floss.
What will I work on next? Oh, I REALLY need to get back to the hand quilting on the feed sack project!
