Well, I am almost finished with this piece. It needs about 30 more beads on the olive tree to the right and then it is done. I started this piece before my dd was born in 1999 and I despaired of ever finishing. But it will be finished this week and then off to the framer! This is one piece that I wish I had kept track of the hours I put in it. Oh well, live and learn.
I also discovered that although I love laying silk and the look of metal work in a piece, I do not like to couch. This was my first big piece using so much silk. Lots of fun. Thanks Orna!
