Happy accidents

This little pixie...er, excuse me, this fairy was supposed to be the top of a chain/vine of flowers down a long seam, but no one thought my reticulated petals and upward-facing center portion looked right.  So, I began to see the petals as a skirt, and stitched a body among the leaves-now-turned-wings, and the flower now-turned-tutu.

My only regret is not having 2mm silk ribbon to wrap the threads for smoother arms and legs.  But the two-toned ribbon I used for the hair and face worked out rather well.

P.S. - Don't forget, this post can also be found at MadAsAHatter.blogspot.com
Very soon, the crazy quilt work will only be featured there.  Thanks for looking in!
