My piece for the Butterflies and Beads contest over at :iconstitchingpirates:

I never beaded anything prior to starting this and discovered that I really don't have the patience for it. CURSE YOU!  This was alternately the bane of my existence or my pride and joy for two months. I'm just glad it's done.
I like that it looks like a page from an illuminated manuscript.

Kit from Imaginating Inc
Design by Diane Arthurs
Stitched on 14 ct natural aida
Size: 104 x 140 stitches (or 7.5 x 10 inches)
Floss colors: 10
Beads: 3 colors 11/0 seed beads; used in place of french knots and as I saw fit

Lovely work, your blackwork looks great and its such a peaceful piece.

Beading takes a little practice and alot of patience haha. Plus a cat-free working zone as I have experienced.Black Cat

I'm thinking more practice and maybe slightly larger beads next time. I have some beading needles but the floss wouldn't fit through the eyes so I had to thread them all by hand.  Thankfully I have no kitty cats to worry about. =D
