Guelder rose Faerie

I'm on a roll!

I have finished another Faerie

this one is the Guelder rose Faeries

I surrounded them with birds and other critters and a magic keyhole for their part of the secret garden

 I have used a little more SRE on this piece I am challenging myself to use it.

like with the pre-made sew on motifs and roses it almost feels like cheating because it takes up so much real-estate and is relatively easy to accomplish

  as those of you who follow me regularly I LOVE seam treatments but they do take up a lot of time to do

and this series of blocks is to challenge myself to use techniques and motifs I would not normally use

and balance it all in context of the rather delicate drawings of  Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower faeries and the magic of a secret garden

Snail is super cute!

SRE is gorgeous. It's only quick and easy for you because you've mastered it already. It's still a hot mess more often than not when I try! SRE is all about the finesse. :)

Nice block! Love this series.

what a nice block. I love the idea to use all sort of things on a stitch work.

Those birds are beautiful and I LOVE that bitty snail.
