NATURE'S WAY COMPLETED

The snow storm has kept me inside and my fingers flying!


 The fuchsia agate has now been stitched to the felted wool background and further embellished with tiny stones and glass leaf drops. I decided the background could use some additional texture with hand embroidery and a few more beads...the results are below.
