Finish: How Does Your Garden Grow

Hi everybody,

Well I finished the stitching on How Does Your Garden Grow about two weeks ago and started beading right away.
Unfortunately,  about 3/4 of the way through, I ran out of beads, which was a major inconvenience as there are no shops around me that carry Mill Hill (that I know of!). Thankfully, the lovely Elaine from Lanybleu Stitches, with whom I did the color exchange over the Summer, came to the rescue and sent me a package of the beads I was missing. Thanks again Elaine!
Here are some photos of the pieces, all beaded:

I went last Sunday to the Knitting & Stitching Show, where I found a gorgeous backing fabric and bellpull to finish it up:

And finally, my very good friend Camila sacrificed her Sunday afternoon, and probably half her sanity, and put this all together for me:

Thank you so so so much Camila, I don't know what I would do without you :)

Camily just started her blog, check it out here ; not only does she stitch, but she also does amazing papercrafts.
