Dedicated to sharing from the heart, that which is made with the hands and considered a true gift from heaven.

Faces RR Juli's Block
Having a beautiful stitcher with a creative mind to set the theme in a round robin is the best asset in the world in stitching and with Kathy ahead of me I can follow normally in her slippers, but not her shoes.
I chose to use the lace that I hand coloured with pastel oils in three shades. I beaded around the cab and added dimension. I did a few beaded seams and added some sparkle and as Kathy used butterflies I wanted to continue that theme as well. I also chose to do a silkribbon rose. I truly loved the challenge of what to do with a face, and now I would not hesitate to use lace cut outs as a swirling spring setting.
