GSC Embellishment I

I quilted a couple of ATCs last week, then went back to work on the Guild Scrap Challenge quilt. So far I've done a small amount of embroidery and a lot of beadwork, experimenting here and there with some new ideas:



All the beads are leftovers from other projects, and the leaves of the bronze ribbon rose are actually the trimmings from the binding. I screwed up a few things -- the woven-thread fan isn't wide enough, and the beaded heart is off-center -- but I'm hoping the charm will outshine the errors.
