This piece is connected to design because it requires knowledge of surface design, embroidery and beading. This work highlights the surface of fabric with different embroidery stitches and beadwork.

When I work with different materials such as thread and beads I am reminded that I can be as creative as I want to be. I began this piece without any knowledge of what I wanted it to look like and I just started to stitch. When my work is going well I don't feel rushed and I make sure that the piece is as full as I can get it and in this case, without it being too cluttered. This work really opened my eyes as to what embroidery can accomplish.
