I was thrilled to receive this image and comment on the Online Beading Workshop Blog and have Karen's permission to post her comments as well.
Well, I think I have a bit of everything on this 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of embellished felt! I did not glue the cabochon and after two tries I think I got it right. Thank you so much for providing the impetus to work with my beads. You showed me lots of ways to turn a seed bead into something special.
I'll watch your blog for more beading classes and continue to wonder why I can't have a "bead wall" like yours!
It has been very exciting running my first online workshop and I am all ready to start the next one on March 17th.
Just six days to go if you want to sign up and I am sure you will really enjoy it,
