So happy that you love it. I had such a great time working on it.
Thank you too!
You are so creative. I love the little treasure chest and the crabs too. Great Job.
Thank you Robin. It will be on it's way to you tomorrow.
Here is a picture of the work I did on Robin's block.
It's beautiful, Diane! Love all the little critters. Did you have fun with your ribbons? The vine is pretty, too.
I found the ribbons hard to work with. I took the right flower out to redo it once. My hands really felt the work on the ribbons but I think it gets easier. I love the ribbon colors and was glad to have a chance to use the light and dark purples. I decided to put blueberries on the vine and everything matched!!!
I also used Swarovski crystal butterflies and put one white crystal in the corner as accent glitter too.
Diane, It's really beautiful. I love all the buttons and charms.
Thanks Linny and Lillie. I love Robin's block--so pretty!
I found out why my fibro was giving me pain---I haven't taken my Neurontin for 4 days. I just didn't put it in my organizer. Now I know how much I need it.
The jewelry sale is Saturday. I'm so glad I'm not in pain anymore!!!
Well, that explains a lot, doesn't it. I'm glad you found the reason for it. Now you're good to go for Saturday.
Diane, I went back and looked again. Those are the cutest little pink butterflies. They're crystal? They're so tiny and cute. See, I know how these pics just don't do the work justice. I bet it sparkles all over. I like the little berries, too.
Yes, they are crystal pink butterflies. I have ordered from Amazon "The Handbook of Silk Ribbon Embroidery" by Ann Cox. It had great reviews and was about $10.
So hopefully I can create beautiful silk flower motifs!!!
I can't believe the difference in the pain about half hour after I took the medication. I'm feeling back to normal now.
Beautiful work Diane. I love the color and texture the ribbon adds to the flowers. Your blueberry vine is delicate and beautiful. The charms and crystal butterflies are such nice touches. I can't wait to see it in person.
I absolutely love it. I love the butterflies and other critters. The lupine are beautiful. What a way to start my day!
Thank you so much.
Good luck on the jewelry sale. And woo hoo to living without pain!!!!
