photo a Week

Today's theme chosen by Serena is "Things with Wings" ....  I'm not fast enough or close enough with my camera to get a great bird shot.  The plane is in the hangar for repairs... (just kidding ... lol) .... the falcon is over at the brother-in-laws... oh, alright kidding again.... and erm let me see...oh, yeh....forget me trying to do bees and stuff... I don't like them all that much....

So.... check out these cute little wings on the baby dragon Maggi made for me....




















Yeh....they're small, but they get me around.....



















All of a sudden I find it strange that this is one of the only two dolls I've made with wings....and in fact...they share this pair...hahahahh..... depending upon whose turn it is to have her photo taken. Hmmm...methinks its time to make some wings...



















Her buddy Sam the beetle has some wings too... my first experience with free motion embroidery.... some fibers under tulle.....

Oooooops....this week's theme was actually - Signs - and next week's theme is - Things with Wings. No matter, next week, you might like to swap and do the Signs theme. I LOVE what you have posted for Things with Wings! The baby dragon is adorable and you already know how much I love your Serenity doll. Which doll does she share the wings with? I still marvel at your expertise on making little shoes....maybe you were a cobbler/shoemaker in a past life. ;)

Well, no matter, your doll is exquisite and I love the little wings. But I especially adore those shoes!!! If I were still making dolls, I'd want you to teach me to do that!

LOL... looking forward to seeing the signs next week. This week's wings are AWESOME!

I love that little dragon, he's TOO cute! And Sam the beetle is the cutest beetle ever. His wings are lovely!
