and here is the pin ‘finished’ – still needs backing and pinback, etc.  and trying to decide if it needs more ‘border’, like fringe of some kind.  or dangles?  i will let it be for now – perhaps begin another.

i can tell you, sewing all those little beads on is at least as hard on the eyes as applique – maybe worse!  still, fun. ^_^  and i have already chosen the next piece – will be gold and white.  yum.

and now, i must return to that large yellow iris.  want it finished by the time i get to eureka.  also, time to begin the commissioned piece for iris. yes, a woman named iris! ^_^  does get confusing sometimes.  finally heard from her, and turns out i can’t use yellow at all.  may be able to use the dark peachy red i just purchased for the tulip kits.  we shall see.  don’t think all white flowers would be all that exciting.

love and beauty
