I’ve finished the Lavender plant and begun the butterflies. Keeping in mind, I’m thinking about Phoebes Dreaming while I complete this, so sparkling plants and butterflies seemed to fit. I like the idea of Phoebes dreaming of bright, sparkling bugs to nourish their journey from egg to flight, then on to their own contribution to the larger cycle of life. I’m afraid the photo does not show the sparkling thread at all, but you can imagine, I hope. I still need to add the bodies of the butterflies and maybe some beads, or more metallic thread for small, decorative spots.
