New Work

Thie is the design I ended up with. I decided that I would have the butterfliers flying in an undulating line diagnoly across the tree. I wanted the butterflies to go from large to small as they disappeared off the fabric. I needed a few more small crocheted butterflies. Fellow Focus member Barb Tenneson took one of my butterflies home with her and figured out how to make three more for me. Thanks Barb.

  1. Marilyn I am going to comment... because I love what you have done and I truly appreciate the sharing of your thought processes. Makes me feel better to see other people also have those 'moments' of yeah or nay...
    I liked the colorful birds, but because of the subtle ... and beautiful.. background, you wanted to preserve and focus that. The butterflies are an excellent alternative to the birds.
    I think [and I could be wrong] that your butterflies would really be showcased if you added a color under them to bring them to the forefront. Not to overpower the sublties of the marbled background.I am thinking a sheer mauve organza? Just a vague shape... I see you have used it .. the shape that is.. in one of the 'declines'. I feel it would bring the marbled fabric INTO the scene...

    My 2 cents worth...
    Love your work and drop by often.
