I has a happy dance :)... and it's another WIP too! whoo hoo!
Lizzie Kate's "ABC's of Aging Artfully ". I hadn't touched it in a long time... since I wanted to make changes - add buttons, beads, charms and of course some sparkly Kreinik thread! This took quite a while, as I wanted just the right items :) and inspiration finally took hold of me.. and I finished it!
So here it is!
and some close-ups of the details...
Beads on the gold square too, that match the thread
I couldn't find a chocolate charm..
so I guess a whole chocolate cake will do!
square beads for jello - secured with Kreinik
The spoon is made of stitched/woven Kreinik
I think it turned out pretty good
more charms and buttons
accent on letter is Kreinik
with a small heart button
and more beads at end
Tried to make the books look more 3-D,
so I used a padded stitch
- cross stitch and then long stitches on top
I changed the house design a bit,
adding a window and bead on door
with different stitches for roof and fence
and beads on the tree
Love the bird button :)
more charms and beads
Two sizes of beads on the flowers
and of course Kreinik for the bee wings!
So another WIP done.
I think I'll work on the rest of my WIPs
and maybe get them all done by the end of this year.
But which one's next?
I might have a few to pick from....
unless some Mill Hill's get in the way...
That's another story...
