I have started working on a bead embroidery project for my daughter. This is my first attempt at bead embroidery but I think it looks good so far. The main cabochons are in place. Now it's time to fill in the rest. What do you guys think so far?

Go, go, just go nuts on the rest of it and always remember you can pull out stitches if it starts to go a direction you don't like. This is the only type of beading where you can easily use shorter threads. And, in fact, it is better if you stick to a couple of feet or so, if one bead breaks off or a stitch breaks it always limits the number of beads that can come off. No fussing with tying new threads to old ones, just a knot on the back...... Donna

You're doing very well for your first piece.

Like the others said just keep going. The first one is always the most intimidating.

Now, just let your creative mind go.

Can't wait to see your finished piece.
