Take It Further, March...Finished

Finishing is not my favorite part....but everything is done, down to the binding.

The lettering took about a day...the space in the center of my felted background was always intended for a greeting, or message...and at this beautiful season of Easter, and soon, Passover, this is the phrase that came to mind...

The little things in nature that we notice are indeed blessings as well!

"Blessings to You"

16 1/2" X 20 1/2"

Thank you all for your very kind comments about this piece as it went along. It was really a joy to make!

So Springy! I love the way the flowers and the leaves give the piece so much movement, like a Spring breeze.

"...a joy to make" and a joy to behold. Thanks for the ride.

And in less than a month! Beautiful spring greeting. I love all the little touches, such as that frog bead, that would require so much time to examine. The overall look reminds me of a fairy bower in a garden, but there's also so much to see close-up!

That's really special. I like the way the center is darker than the border, usually we do it the other way 'round. Lovely. Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
