She's Done - Fire Fairy

Beading and embellishments are done. I added hot fix embellishments to the dress and belt.  The shoulder straps were embellished with little silver dragonflies and I decided to give her a hand beaded headband.  Now to add the hanging sleeve and signature and she'll be complete!

Earth Fairy - Painted Background

Finally found the time to get the background started.  First step was to paint her background in earthy colors following Barbara Lanza's instructions in her book Enchanting Fairies - How to paint charming Fairies and Flowers.  Along with her suggestions and following her path - I create each project customizing to painting on fabric, adding various embellishments and trying to create something magical.  Here's the first step - I will post pics of her as I go:

Happy New Year 2013

It's the new start of another journey in the year 2013.  We all have so many things we'd like to accomplish.  This year - I'd like to focus on Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting Project among the other quilting projects I have committed myself let the year begin.  I have ordered my Goddess fabric from for Leah's Panel of the Goddess Quilt.  How exciting - Can't wait til it arrives! You can find the Free motion Quilting Project here:  

Among Leah's quilt project I'd like to also get started on my second of four fairies - Earth Fairy - Here is her photo all stitched out:

Happy New Year to all and may you be blessed with nothing but happiness and good things in life!
