Latest beaded embroidery piece

The first two pictures were taken by DH. He wanted to take this picture to show what I'm doing when I'm not out caring for my gardens. Right click on pictures for a larger view.

These next pictures are what I was working on at the time. I really love doing this, and can sit here for hours at a time with soothing music playing in the background, and the patio garden to look out onto for inspiration and to relax my eyes from the detailed work.

Where I create

Here is the little space where I create my needlework pieces. The space is about 6'x8'. The window looks out onto a patio garden, facing south. You can read a lengthier post about it here: My little space

I am very thankful to DH for his skill and labor in creating this space.

Leaves, etc.

Here is another beaded embroidery piece.

I love embroidering and I love adding the beads.

Finished Zebra Longwing butterfly

Here is the completed zebra longwing butterfly with hamelia paten ~ Firebush, blooms.

This was a neat little project, done from my own photograph.
