I discovered this beautiful pattern from my favorite beader Sigrid Wynne-Evans last year.

Last Christmas, during my parents' visit here, they wanted me to make them a bead tapestry and I fell in love with this pattern.
I've started beading this on January 17, 2013 and took me 107 days to finish this. During the 3.5 month period, I learned glass blowing, stained glass and my last passion: lampworking, so I wasn't always beading this.
This lucky Tiger tapestry will go to Indonesia this Summer, where my parents live and hopefully will brighten their days, as much as brighten my days knowing it'll be in good hand.
This tapestry measures 9.3 x 15.20 inches (23.6 x 38.6 cm). It uses 39 colors. done in Peyote stitch, for the total of 42,408 delica 11/0 beads.
