Sumptuous Surface shell FINISHED!

Well, I stitched in the car, and then I started adding beads, beads, and more beads. Tonight I really wanted to finish it, so I just kept going until it was finished (about 5 minutes ago)! My legs were stiff when I went to stand, because I had sat in the same position for so long. (When I'm close to finishing something, I like to keep going until it's done.) Maybe some will say I should have left it more open, but I'm happy with the way it came out.

Lynn, I LOVE all the beading which makes the inner subtle designs just POP! and the starfish in the bottom left corner made me smile. It's BEAUTIFUL!

Lynn, this is so beautiful and your stitches are so exact. I like the lacy look of the pulled thread area.

I love how the beading and texture turned out!

I hope I can do as well on my piece! Definitely worth all the time you put into it!
