I received yesterday but didn't have time to post pictures until tonight after I got home from work.

Here it is!

At first I thought all the beads were just glued on, but I took a closer look and they're sewn!! I can't imagine how long this would have taken.

Even the words and little designs are stitched on. I thought the Hershey label was really cute with the squiggle cut too.

My partner also said that I would get bonus points if I knew where the quote was from. Sadly, I'm horrible when it comes to movies and have no clue. Any fellow crafters want to help me out?

I received! My partner was loves2experiment again. We were partners in the last round so when I saw her name and address I knew who my partner was right away  Cheesy And lucky me! Look what I got!

I love it! This will be going up over my sewing area in my craft room. Thanks so much loves2experiment Cheesy

Wow this gallery is already so full of fabulous pieces of art!
And I'm adding more, because I received from my mystery partner today...

Somehow I didn't manage to get a sharper pictire, so dear partner, if you have a better one feel free to post.

Great painting Sylwa.
Another gorgeous multimedia piece, loves2experiment, yours is wonderful.
And the mystery piece in the Miro style, very cool.

I  received today from my "mystery" partner......Gr33nT3a.....and she sent me this beautiful Hawaiian inspired piece (since she's living there!)

Isn't she beautiful? She sketched it out in pencil, then filled it in with watercolor. She left the edges for me in case I'd like to frame it! I'm not sure how I want to frame it yet, but I know where it's going. Thank you!!

Oh, PS....Gr33nT3a....the movie quote answer is 50 First Dates (located in Hawaii, fittingly!), and it took me about 6-8 hours on the beading...I did each bead individually. There are not any strings of beads!  I'm going to make myself one to put in a hoop....

Still loving the art! My DC number says my partner received on Wednesday, I am eager to hear if she likes it! I haven't received yet but I'm still eagerly waiting Cheesy

I would love to do a personal swap for stuff for my lonely, empty walls!
