Here is the little piece I embroidered and beaded. I added a little bit of lace and a wire bird nest that my sister makes. It did not photograph as well as I wanted but after about 20 different shots I gave up. In between the beads I have stitched with a gold thread, it looks neat because it picks up the gold on the little branch and on the frame. In this case a picture is not worth 1000 words,but I wanted to share what I've been working on. This cute (in real life) piece is available in my Etsy store.
