Two steps backward but one big step forward. I wasn't happy with the beaded Vandyke stitch I had done on this piece so I picked it out. I also wasn't happy with the beading done on the shibori ribbon so I picked that out. I really don't like to pick out stitching. I guess no one likes it. Still I am glad that I did it.
I added a ton of beads to the top seam. It took a few hours but it was enjoyable. I find the handwork relaxing.
