All That Jazz Day 2


All That Jazz Day 2

I have the butterfly filled in now. I used 3 strands of DMC cotton floss and 1 strand of Kreinik Blending Filament in the blue part. It's a perfect focal point.

I feel so much better about this now. I was having such a terrible creative block over this piece. The theme was just throwing me off.

Anyway, as I mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm going to be adding some forgetmenot flowers to represent those who lost their lives to the storm. I may also add a wavy music staff to help make my cute little buttons work.

I also need to Google Bouganvilla flowers. My mom said they're pink and this block could definately use some more hot pink. I have no idea what they look like because the don't grow up north where I live but they're quite popular in southern gardens so I thought they might make a nice addition.

Pam,

Your butterfly turned out great! Looking forward to seeing more progress.

Oh it is going to be perfect Pam - your sentiments really hit the spot. I am interested to read how you used metallic thread on the butterfly. I have just used one of the threads you sent me; I used one strand with two strands of white, for a Xmas candy stick in red and white. I doubt if the person who receives it will notice the difference, but I did think it lifted the design out of the ordinary!

Pam bouganvillias can be from light pink to a deep hot pink - when I was in Western Australia I had an apricot one in my yard.

It wil be interesting to see how the block develops.

We had bouganvillias in our garden in Trinidad when I was a little girl. Beautiful flowers, lovely ideas developing around your block too :) Funny it already has a perfume for me, must be those flower memories. Do bouganvillias have a scent?
