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.


  1. Lovely work, Karrin. I especially like the spray of roses.

  2. 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!!!!

  3. 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.
