Next Stage of my Wild Embellished Cross

I finished piecing together the embellished and quilted fabric that I started last fall. It is definetly full of color. Now I am starting to embellish it. My plan is to create something along the lines of my Dandelion Wine piece. This pieces is much larger though, approx 24" x 32". That piece took me about a month, so I have a feeling this will take even longer. I tend to do the hand work while I am sitting with my kids doing thier schoolwork. It helps give me the patience to sit through math and phonics lessons. I started by beading the outline of the cross. Now I am working on little stacks of seed beads. This is only the beginning! I'm hoping to post pictures at the various stages.

I love the variations in the rich colors here and all the texture created by the beading. Can't wait to see what you do with this piece. It looks magnificent.

I'm excited to see how this develops. It's so beautiful. I'm a great fan on Quilting Arts magazine but have not yet tried any ideas from it. This looks like the projects shown there.
