Garden of Joy - Complete!

Well that beading went a whole lot faster than I thought it would! I had never beaded a piece before and I thought it would take me a long time but it really went very quickly. So quickly that I got all of the beads done last night and completed the piece! I love how it turned out!

First, a close up of some of the beads:

And now the completed piece!

Garden of Joy Ornament by Turquoise Graphics & Designs
Started: 1/11/13
Finished: 4/6/14
Stitched on 32-ct off white linen

I'm still not entirely sure how I'm going to finish this piece yet. I think I'll wait until I finish the next ornament, Winter Flowers, also by Turquoise Graphics and Designs, and decide what to do with both ornaments at that point. Speaking of, time to get started on that WIP. Let's see if I can finish it this month too! I'll post back this week with my progress!

Until next time!

  10. That is really beautiful, Katy! That looks like a ton of beading to me and I doubt I'd ever finish it in one evening. Yay!!

  11. Congratulations on the Happy Dance. beading really does make a big difference to a design. Once you get into a rhythm with it, it is quicker than stitching.
    Looking forward seeing the companion piece to this one.
