~Peaceful Monarch~

I have been working today and boy did it feel good to work on my dollie. She had been laying there, waiting to be finished. I took pictures of her now...because today is an absolutely beautiful day and you never know what tomorrow brings...

I am completely happy with the way she turned out. She is full of whimsy and she just boasts SUMMER! I love Monarchs. Here on our acreage, we have a tree that Monarchs just swarm around. One year we must have had a couple hundred...

She is holding one of my most favorite flowers, the Calla Lily. Made of wool and then finished with a butterfly on the stem. Her wings are wired, so will with stand the test of time...

I have put so much detail in ~Peaceful Monarch~ it is hard to see all the detail in pictures. Lots of hand stitching and such on her. She will be up for Auction, starting Tuesday and end on Sunday evening.

Well, I must go. We are going fishing....it is a most beautiful day, so I am going to enjoy the day. Toodles for now, ~Tonya
