the Hebrew word for peace.

Shalom (watercolor on paper)

The iris symbolizes communication and the butterfly for new beginning.

I am thinking of stumpwork, detached petals with wired edges for some petals and for butterfly wings. The grasses will be different yarns and ribbons. The helmet in padded appliqué. The  leaves will be raised stitches and detached needlelace.

Can we follow this project? In other words: are you going to post as you stitch?

Hi meri! 🙂 Sure I will post the WIP photos. But I do not know how to stumpwork yet. lol!
I am working on a needlelace sampler. I am learning needlelace stitches at the moment. I thought it would be uninteresting for others to see the WIPs. If you like, i will post my present project. 🙂
