Of Birds, Butterflies and Blues

Do you like my new birdie? I could not resist bringing him home.

He is the new addition to my creative space, perched on the shoulder of my mannequin.

A week later, I found this wonderful butterfly, all feathered, glittered and rhinestoned.

She is resting on miss mannequin's tulle skirt.

How could I possibly resist anything so sparkley?

Speaking of sparkles, I am ready to begin my Silver Bella Vintage Winter Sparkle Banner Swap items. With the fabric pages 98% complete, I am moving on to the second of the five swaps in which I'm participating. I only have to make six pieces (all identical) so my goal is to complete it this weekend. I put together all the possible items I might want to use for these last weekend. It turned out I had way more than I could ever use, so I narrowed it down to these yummy pieces. Next step: piecing this together into beautiful banner pennants!
