This is part of a large soft sculpture painting. It is mostly satin stitch and beading, it was my first time embroidering and now I am hooked.

It's beautiful.  Did you just use embroidery floss? 

P.S. I love the big gem in the middle.

I used needlepoint wool, yarn, and matalic threads. FOr the beading I used just plain old sewing thread.

Thank You!
