Ceiba Completion!





I have finished my Ceiba commission! I sewed my last stitch just after midnight on Friday night which is about 3 1/2 weeks since I received the commission. I really hope my lovely Edinburgh folk who it is for like it! I am very pleased with it - it has pushed me in a direction that I would not have gone in otherwise. With my (admittedly limited so far!) bead embroidery, I have never been tempted to create anything pictorial - I usually go freeform - and I haven't done much combining of bead embroidery and bead weaving as yet. So this project has been just great for pushing my personal boundaries! Unfortunately I haven't sent it as yet; when I went to the post office on Saturday morning, I was told that (due to our postal strikes) Special Delivery could not be guaranteed. So I will try again tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed! Here are some pics for you to see the spoils of my labour...
