Thanksgiving is now days behind us but I swear I still feel full from turkey and dressing and cranberry sauce…
I got on my elliptical for the first time in months to try to whittle my thighs back into a reasonable size :o)
The Keystone Summit is coming fast. In one week I will be at my husband’s industrial park displaying my fiber art and jewelry for a festive holiday sale. I will be one of 6 artisans there talking about my craft for the day. It’s crunch time. A LOT of work still needs to be finished, photographed, cataloged and priced. This piece is just one of several metal embellished keepsake boxes I will have there.
FlutterBlush Daydream. The leaves and butterflies are tatted along with the teeny flowers in the right hand corner. The Mum in the center is ribbon embroidery. Various sizes of silk ribbon were used as well as a very cool specialty cord that is a pink mesh tube. The center of the flowers are embellished with faux pearls. Tiny seed beads in matte pink and silver lined pink are stitched around the bottom of the scene. The fabric is a pale blue damask Aida. Handmade cable in two shades of green border the garden and the entire inside is lined with deep red felt. The metal box is approximately 4″ x 3 1/4″ and has a hinged lid. FlutterBlush Daydream. A daydream for the two PIXIE butterflies that are enjoying this blossom…this little treasure will be at the Keystone Summit on the 7th.
I will have more photos of my work as I begin to record the pieces that are going to the Summit.
