Dancing in the Moonlight
Using the split-complimentary theme was a fun way to use my favorite colors. Carl the caterpillar, Freddy the frog, Tina the turtle, and the 3 fireflies are enjoying a warm summer night amongst the woodland grasses. The fireflies are made of 3 beads for the bodies and clear beads for the wings. Angelina fibers add a little glow. The green "stones" on the bottom are beads.
Carl was discovered on my sewing room floor as a rolled up piece of scrap fabric. I added a wire to make him more bendable. I had sewn on glass beads for eyes, but they made him look too evil so I removed them. The purple balls are fuzzy beads. I quilted the piece before adding the leaves and critters. It was good practice experimenting with different designs, threads, templates, and marking tools. I definitely need more practice!
So long from Freddy the frog!
