Arizona Quilt Projects

This is my Christmas Angel surrounded by animals.  She is embroidered and I decided to finish the back of the hanging with the free motion trees......she should be done soon.

My Christmas Toile quilt.  Photo is a bit blurry but it's a work in progress. 
Little Manger scene wallhanging - embroidered, still to be quilted and become a pretty little wallhanging.  I think I'll hang this one in my window for Christmas.

Fire Fairy - Almost Done!

Brought the Fire Fairy thread painting down to Arizona - she is almost's her photo - All I need to do now is embellish her dress and belt and a few other places with Crystals. The first photo is the Fire Fairy sketch - stitched out in black thread  - ready to color.  The bottom photo is her waiting for the finishing touches....She is the first in a series of four.  Fire, Earth, Air and Water.  The photos were taken from a book I purchased called Enchanting Fairies - How to Paint Charming Fairies and Flowers by Barbara Lanza.  I emailed the author and received her permission to blow them up, and thread paint them.  I will email her the finished quilt art.
