This week, despite being freezing or wet and gloomy, i've been working on my butterflies, with the hope that Spring is just around the corner!
So last month, I had started my orange butterfly, which I had nearly completed.
I also started and nearly finished another.
So rather than using my usual colourful palette, I stuck to pastel shades to show up the sparkles of the lurex.
The lurex was a little hard to control but with a thin layer of fleece over the top it was manageable!
I added the hanging ribbon, and for that extra sparkle (because you can never have enough sparkle surely!) I added some sequins!
I just need to find some silver wire to finish it off...
I was in the flow, and I had a little gingerbread cutter, so I decided to start a little man.
I've not made much progress as yet, but thinking I can dress him and maybe add a quaint little bow tie, something I can have a bit of fun with :)
