A New Year

The Dragon Prince ("He who has the gold rules"), Once ("Once Upon A Time" ) and the Princely Dragon ("Treat others as you would be") decided to start the new year by working together.

And here is Time (Once's best friend) who just flew in. (Of course Time flies.)

What better way to start the year than a party.
 

And EVERYONE is welcome. 


No walls.

And lots of people.


Arriving however they can.

Of course the bears were invited too.



And lots of food.



All nationalities.



The World of Possibilities will continue, The Casket Chronicles will resume and I will Create, Hope and Build all year.
I hope you will join me.

The Owl and the Pussycat

 Amy at Thread in Hand has been working on her Owl and the Pussycat project designed by Jenny Adin-Christie.
It motivated me to unearth my half completed dolls and finally finish them. 
So here they are hand in hand, at the edge of the sand, as they dance by the light of the moon.
Thanks for the encouragement Amy! 
And a big thank you to Rachael Kinnison 
at Lady's Repository Museum. If there is enough interest in "The Red House" book I will try to reprint.

Eating Out Of Her Hand

 It is the smallest 3D bird I have ever stitched!

Side Two Too!





I will be back in a couple months with the front of the casket.

Rethinking Color Choices


I loved the panel I embroidered on the deep red silk. I picked the red to carry over the red from the roof top on the casket front.


But I didn't like how the colors worked together on the side. They 'matched' but they didn't flow.



Using the same basic design but a different background I started over.


Much better.

Another Mountain View



There are 2 different views of the Golden Rule Mountains on the casket. This is a new view, the mountains on the side of the Prince. In front of his mountains is a grove of trees.
The mountains sit on the lower frieze of the casket.



Above the mountains is a tapered panel on the casket. I have been experimenting with Italian Wire Mesh and combining it with the silk 'Cordon' from the Frosting Club treasure box.



This is as far as I got on that panel.



The other side of the casket holds the mountain view I've shown you before. 

Again I have used the Italian Wire Mesh and Cabinet of Curiosities supplies for the background scene.

The World of Possibilities Does Not Disappoint


Adding the doors, the 'secret panel' (in white) and the 3D village scene completely changes the look of the casket interior.
More blank canvases to embroidery!
More possibilities!

And by playing in Photoshop a little more I can imagine what the lower interior might look like with the casket top closed.
