It's beautiful. That takes quite a bit of time to make something that big. Excellent.

Growing up my dad did a lot of beading.  Mainly indian design stuff.  I have even tried my hand in it, and so has my wife (simple basic patterns).
I woudl just like to say that this bag is phenonminal.
I mean, WOW.
Seeing things like this makes me almost want to try beading again... almost.

keep up the great work.

Thanks, everybody!!  omg it took forever...I usually do square stitch and this was actually my first attempt at peyote stitch (ALWAYS START SMALL!!!lol) I made this about 3 years ago and have finished beading another in square stitch but it turned out bigger than expected and I am stumped on how to turn it into a purse..(light bulb)..hey I should post pics here and I am sure my fellow Craftsters will give me plenty of good ideas. okay pics to follow.

thanks again everybody, your responses have made me feel so good!!! Grin
