feeling springy

 update on some things i've been working on that are destined for the ETSY shop when I get around to finishing them

the first one is very springy color wise.

 pink and olive green with a little purple thrown in for good measure

I'm getting better at the spiderweb roses! they are not turning out all lumpy and tight anymore and are starting to look more like roses

 the next piece is intended for either a wedding present or ditty bag.

 it's an 8" square and I have a box it will fit on or I could make it into an open top purse  I haven't decided yet.

I love the picture on this one, her dress is so form fitting and restrictive yet her expression is so cheeky! she looks like she could fly away at any moment.

Beauty and the beast is finished...Almost

 its like wesly, mostly done,

the piece needs it's Beast.

I have a wonderful picture of the Beasts mask from Truffault's B&B that my Mom took at the Muse des beau arts in france a few years ago but I can't get my new printer to work over our wireless network and it has no ports for wired so i'm a little stuck there.

anyway, here is Beauties cozy home on the edge of the woods
covered in clematis and the roses that grew over night

and the little blue bird that sings outside her window when her sisters treated her unkindly

here is the fire she warmed herself at and had her first meal, when she first arrives, after her frightening ride through the woods

here is one of the fans that go with the beautiful costumes she is dressed in, by the invisible servants.

the birds that keep her company in the gardens when she is left to wander by the beast

the bird that shows her the way back home when she visits

the statue of Diana in the green house that shoots Gaston, when he brakes in to steal the beasts treasures

Fools Gold #1-Barb's block

 I went with more swirlies since Barbara's instructions were to keep it light and airy.
these ruched flowers fell out of a bag of other trims i was going through and landed pretty much where I sewed them,  they really wanted to be where they are!
 more beaded forget-me-not's and couched braided trim

here is the whole thing finished!
