Flower Fairies, Ritva's block

This week I had the pleasure of working on Ritva's Flower Fairy blocks. I chose the Rose Fairy to work on. I added a little ribbon skirt, and enhanced her wings a bit, I also added some fine curly yarn for her hair and couched that down and featherstitched over it.
I added the beaded seam and the hand-dyed dragonfly and the reddish looking lace above.

I also added a spray of rosebuds.


This is the whole block I am sending off.

Karrin,

Happy Belated Birthday! I haven't checked my mail for a few days and just found out that I missed the festivities! Hope it was a good one!!!!

Karrin, Just love how you have created your fairy with the hair and
skirt. Only hope that one day I will
have a granddaughter to create these
girly things for. Probably why I
am into SRE now. Not much I could create when I had 2 Boys ( Men now)
who were just into play and getting messy. Also like your new look.
Got in and did mine also, Time is the
problem hey.
