Butterfly Progression - Ready to Bead

With the butterfly still not attached, here is a photo of where I'm at now.  I didn't want you to think I'm not working!  All of the embroidery is complete and I only have beading to do.  I'll be saving the body to show you when I take the "finished" photo.

Butterfly Wing 14


  1. Reen! this is so beautiful, I love how this is turning out.

  2. Reen
    It looks great... I love the vine and flowers on it --- can't wait to see the body!!!

  3. The butterfly is beautiful and I like the way you picked up the colors in the flowers. Can't wait to see the beading.



  4. Beautiful! I can't wait to see it finished. You? Not working? LOL!!!!! I don't think so.

  5. Absolutely breathtaking!! You are an ARTIST! Hugs, Cathy

  6. It's so beautiful Maureen! I love those little black eye-shaped beads on the pink...perfect addition to the butterfly...And I'm assuming that the middle of the flowers are going to be beads??

    But I would really really love to see those forget-me-nots up close. How did you make them? They look very very sweet and lovely. The whole piece is a delight to behold.

    Ever thought about whipping some wire to the underside of the wings so that they could be a little 3-dimensional?

    Happy beading, xo Susan
