I made this for onegroovyday for the mini art quilt swap, she lives at the beach so I made her a lake. I learned alot by making this, alot of things I did right and alot I did wrong  Wink! There are over 1200 seed beads sewn on and the finished size is 28 x 18.


the pic doesn't show but there are tiny green seed beads is the tree scattered throughout and glass leaves sewn on.

I quilted the bark on the tree

the sun has beads and the smoke from the houses are also beads

the flowers are buttons


Thanks for looking!

This is really lovely work.  I think that the embellishments of the beads look great.  Similar to that which I did on the wallhanging I put on Craftster.   Well done.  I am awaiting inspiration for my next project.  Thanks this might be pointing me in the right direction.  well done you

That is so awesome! I've been wanting to create a scene like that out of all the materials I have saved. I love all the little details such as the dragonflies and smoke coming from the chimneys...fantastic!!
