There is a particular kind of garden that is planted with flowers and plants meant to attract butterflies. In that garden, the butterflies become almost like moving flowers in their own right and add to the beauty of what has been planted. I wanted to bring that idea to life with thread and fabric (and, of course, beads!)

Undersea Fantasy is a set of #needlework tools in #Casalguidi-style #embroidery. Kathryn says that this set of designs leds itself well to creativity, so feel free to change the colors and placement of elements as you like. If you don't want to make them into accessories, you can frame the designs, stitching them in different ways. #stitching #needlework

    Thank you, Marina! I have to say that "cupcakes" have become something of an obsession for me.
