What materials did you use? I threw everything but the kitchen sink at this project...paint sticks, machine stitches, hand stitching, machine embroidery, 3 D fireworks from a free embroidery download, various yarns etc. for couching, crystals and probably some I forgot. NO rules and NO mistakes so I had a lot of fun!

What are you most proud of? I'm quite happy with the finished product and it looks really good with a light on it.

Thank you so much. I was trying to find yours but didn't have any luck. I'll look again. I just hung mine and it looks a lot better with light on it.

This is truly beautiful. I have seen this one on display with lighting and it does look like fireworks. Capturing the spirit of fireworks during the 4th of July is something I think about while gazing at this wonderful piece.

Lovely! As I went through the course I was wondering about using machine embroidery. You did a great job.

Very artistic eye you have there. Wonderful piece with so many elements -- yet it isn't overwhelming, but fun.

This is so inspiring. I'm in the process of choosing my fabric. This dark background is perfect for all the stitching!!!

Thank you Ann. I'm going to try another one soon and brighten it up a little...this one shines a lot in the light...there's more glitz on it than shows in the pic...the final sprays of fireworks are made on the embroidery machine using metallic thread then cut out and sewn on by hand...adds some dimension.
