Beading, embroidery and a giveaway!

I have discovered a new passion....I have always wanted to know hoe to do hand beading and embroidery, so I finally took the plunge and got all of the things I needed, plus I got this book from Amazon to get me started....
This is a great book for beginners, at least for me....Below is the pattern I decided to paint first and then bead:

Here it is at the beginning stages...

and here is where I got to today...I bead a while and then embroidery the green part for awhile so that I don't get bored...

So, this is my new project and I am really loving it. Also, don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for the bracelet I painted...

Just leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you if your name is drawn!!

Happy creating!
