Heliotrope fairy

I don't know why but I feel like I OLE!-ed this one.

most of it is trims and motifs I just tacked down.

the hardest part was deciding what to put in the bottom right corner.

the cattails do look divine don't they?

 the rest was pretty simple a little beading here,
     a little seamwork there                        
                           bees allover the place
                                                       and Voila!
heliotrope fairy!

Violet Fairie

 another fairie is done and in his garden

 with critters

the dragonfly was made out of the last two fringes off a bead fringe that went on the red rose pouch from a few posts ago.
spider is made from flat Krenik, teardrop bead and a faceted glass bead.

the blue bird was made with stem stitch and split stitch on the wings

I found a little glass lamp-work snake in a drawer and thought it would look good just there under the button run

and there is another key hidden in the sequins.

every garden needs secrets. I outlined the fairies wings with krenik filament to give him a little more focus.

I don't quite know what I am going to do with these little guy's yet. maybe a wall hanging or separate boxes a purse? i don't know yet.
but they are fun to experiment with and challenge myself with.

my challenge with this one was how to balance it against that honking great bit of purple motif. How do you think I did?

a pouch and a puss

I'm putting a new pouch in the shop today.
it's a little bigger than the others about 5"x5" with a silk cord strap.

a lucky spider in the corner, lots of lacy bits...

A dragonfly and fan in the lower corner
and roses curling up the side

I had just enough of these dangles left over from something else to put on the bottom and two for accents at the side.

when I came back in my room to make my bed this morning I found this between the pillows!

I  didn't have the heart to disturb her so the bed will get made later than usual today!
