Jane April 22, 2021 at 8:40 pm 2 months ago Reply Hi Sharon this is a lovely piece, I have yet to attempt anything as encrusted. Do you embroider the whole piece and then add the beads or do you leave a space for whole lot of beads to be added later? Must try this soon!! Gill Compigne-Leaney April 22, 2021 at 8:37 pm 2 months ago Reply Gill I start off with placing the beads that will act as a point of emphasis – then some secondary smaller beads to lead the eye. I then establish a couple of linear elements in stitch. I try to hold off with the beads until at least a third of the area is stitched then I just let rip – hope that makes sense. I keep meaning to write a tutorial demonstrtating as I go but don’t get around to it. sharonb April 23, 2021 at 10:15 am 2 months ago Reply I love these colours together. I did my City and Guilds in embroidery twenty years ago and the very first piece I produced was in similar colours. I had never thought to pair the two together and like yours it was a success. I have changed my style since then and love your ‘busy’ pieces. I work in bright colours all the time. Your work is inspiring. Maggie Morris. Maggie Morris April 22, 2021 at 4:51 pm 2 months ago Reply Beautiful. I’d like to try something like this. Andrea in Austr April 22, 2021 at 11:26 am 2 months ago Reply I think your bold colours are just perfect. Besides, the blue and orange are complements of each other. I love the beads especially the blue half-moons. Where do you find such unusual beads?

Andy LW Andy Lloyd Williams April 22, 2021 at 7:27 am 2 months ago Reply I think the turquoise with the bright orange is a great pairing. I don’t know where (maybe you showed a preview of this item), but I saw those two colors together very recently and thought what a striking combination they made. SandyMay April 22, 2021 at 7:24 am 2 months ago Reply This is reminiscent of the US Southwest and it’s lovely! I would never have put these colours together myself and look what I would have missed. I do indeed like it and the choice of beads and stitches is fabulous. Bonnie Adie April 22, 2021 at 7:05 am 2 months ago Reply It is beautiful! In America those are colors of the southwest. Stunning!! Ann Ann Quandee April 22, 2021 at 6:48 am 2 months ago Reply Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!!! Eleanor K Hunzinger April 22, 2021 at 6:29 am 2 months ago Reply I love it! All winter here in Alaska, the view outdoors is monochromatic. Your bright colors are so happy! Suzanne April 22, 2021 at 6:09 am 2 months ago Reply Love this!
