looking for flowers

I'm back to focusing on atcs and this one incorporates a small beaded piece I worked on earlier. I'm planning to add more beads and embellishments.

Thankfully we had no additional snow but the piles from shoveling and plows are still there. It's a cold and dark day and I'm ready for spring.

It is a nice contrast to have the beaded piece with the solids around it. At first glance, the beads might be part of the fabric design, that's puzzling in a pleasant way.

I love how soft that floral is and the beads are just perfect. just the right amount.

My hubby has been shoveling piles of snow onto the driveway daily for it to melt, thus lessening the piles in our yard...however, the white piles still remain...?!

The beads are perfect on that fabric; really well placed.

I have crocuses and primroses blooming. I didn't even know the primrose would survive the winter.

yes, I can see you are waiting and hoping for spring in this piece-- there has been way too much snow this winter

I just love miniature art - so ATCs and ACEOs are naturally something i love to do. I like your concept here - a minature patchwork. Looking forward to the finished piece!

This inspires me to do some piecing.

I remember those snow piles. I grew up in Michigan and did a lot of shoveling.
