The Shell has Landed

The future owner of this piece came visiting about five minutes after I got home, after a day out you can read about here and turns out she's in for surgery this week, is in a lot of pain, so without further ado, I gave her the beaded piece I made for her, instead of waiting to show it to embroidery buds.  She really needed it, got all teary, and loved it.  So I think it served its purpose!

Anyway, this is how it was just before she seized it and ran home with it.She wants to get it framed, no need for me to do it.

It looks great - and obviously it was a gift that was meant to be.
