It's done- part 2

Posted on 11:31 PM by merrilymerrily

This is a pair of silk butterfly wings for my niece Tahlia. It was probably the easiest, most fun and beautiful present of the holiday season. silk painting is so fun, and then it was just a matter of gathering the middle with ribbon and sewing some hand loops on. I can imagine her running around the backyard arms outstretched, hmmm... wouldn't mind a pair myself actually. I just have to stress to her Mummy that they ARE for playing with and not to be precious. I think that children should be surrounded by beauty, even delicate beauty- the impact it has on the child far outways any material cost (which really wasn't that much)
