Bead embroidery 'Joy'

I've finished the orange/pink/purple bead embroidery that I named Joy. I did originally take some pictures at the beginning where I'd stitched the materials together before I added the beads and buttons but then I accidentally deleted the pictures before I managed to upload them. Anyway, here is the final piece.

It's quite large and I wished it was smaller by the time I was half way through. It measures about 13 inches square without the border. I've promised myself I'll go smaller in future as I get bored easily, although the size did allow plenty of space for variety.

Here are a few detail shots.
