All Glittered Up!

Decided to name this baby today - Butterfly in my Garden  - an appropriate name considering that's what it looks like.  It was such a pretty piece of embroidery - and then I decided to Glitter it - and I LOVE how it turned out - although the photos don't do it justice - it's a very pretty piece of 3D quilting, embroidery, glitter in my world.......I have a few places for it to hang - but it's still drying and this is the end result and my husband loved it too - his first comment was - wow - 3D........I LOVE it and this one is mine!

All Glittered Up and totally free motion embroidered

Woodsy embellished background and hanging!

Insatiable need to create............

Had a few projects just waiting and today I had this urge to create something rules, just here's what I came up with - It is still a work in progress.  The first photo is the beginning......

It all began with the embroidered butterfly - a symbol of hope - and I then surrounded it with fussy cut flowers to reflect a garden....
I decided to free motion the flowers in layers.........and 3 bobbins and a few hours later - this is what it became:

I'm kind of liking how it turned out so far..........still to come is the embellishment of the butterfly with paint or glitter - will have to think on that one and call it a successful day!
