Embroidery time

Finding time to DO bead embroidery when it's TIME to do bead embroidery is quite the feat.  Now that I have everything gathered for my spring rain fairy - I just don't seem to have the time to get her started.  I did find a surprise in one of my UFO boxes today, though - a partially finished set of fairy wings, beaded in the EXACT same colors that I plan to use for her.  Thank you, Spirit!  Now I'm at least a little bit ahead of the game.
This project has also got me thinking about the other pieces that I've embroidered - and where they ended up.   Unfortunately in some ways - I still have most of them.  Fortunately in some ways - I still have some of them.  They are beautiful works of art that are worn, and admired.  I still show and try to sell a few of them on occasion - this one will have it's second round at The Lansing Art Gallery  when I take the other vineyard pieces to them in April...
Maybe if she appears as a part of the whole theme, she'll find her new home.  Looking forward to seeing how spring rain fairy emerges....that's part of the beauty of embroidery and freeform work - it tends to create itself (with a little help from the person holding the needle). 
And as far as those dreams - never did get the nap, and now I think I'm going to go try to dream again - FOR REAL.

That's gorgeous! It reminds me of a baby in a papoose. So sweet.
