This is really nice!  You've discovered that most of the embroidery stitches are very simple and it doesn't take a lot to stitch up something lovely.  Great work!

Really thanks again for all the nice comments!

You are totally right IamSusie, most of the stitches are quite easy when you start actually following them (execpt that pesky chain stitch I just can't get).  Now I just need to practice following a pattern Smiley

Very pretty, and the beads add the perfect finishing touch.

It's funny.. chain stitch is my favorite.   Maybe the trick is working it only from the top.  Some stitches you have to stab down to the back and then take a second stitch going back up.  I just do the chain from the top so I like it better...


I hate the stem stitch.   Mine never look right...

This is inspirational.  I love the addition of the beads.  Can't believe you're just a beginner.  Thank you for posting!
