    These are from my collection of favorites done in either crazy patch, beadwork, embroidery, cross stitch, post cards, landscapes, portraits or odd sized shaped minis which I love. None of these were done by me. They are just my collection of favorites.

    However, I hope to do some similar type work and get "N2" my huge collection of sequins, buttons, laces, pearls, ribbons, flowers, silks/satins, beads, etc. Hope you are inspired like I am. Enjoy!

    Love this round shaped one

    I just love them all - hard to pick a favorite. I'm bookmarking this for some inspiration later. I have cross-stitched that same pattern, "plant kindness". Thanks for sharing these.

    Go to google.com and click on "images" then type in "beadwork/embroidery quilt designs" and hit "search." Here's one that came up:


    http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://farm1.static.flickr.com/196/491402993_84ef3d6714.jpg&imgrefurl=http://flickr.com/photos/7928812%40N...QSzrs9vXRSg1cM:&tbnh=98&tbnw=130&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dbeadwork/embroidery%2Bquilt%2Bdesigns%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG%26 gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:1

    hope this link works. It didn't highlight for me yet but here's the picture. Enjoy your searching @ http://google.com/images!

    Be inspired, create something wonderful and give it as a gift to bring joy to someone today! :D :D :D

    sorry for the long link :-(
