Stupendous Stitching - First Project

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was my first project and I went large. I also tried working with some different materials (chain, beads, leather cord). Initial couching of this material presented some puckering and had to pull it out and restitch some of them. But I learned a lot. I also added some small silk flowers because I felt the piece needed a focal point. Not sure they are exactly right, but went for it What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to experiment.
