My latest project - Challenge for Fibers and Fabrics part 2

I have been busy working on this, and have finished some more elements.  I've finished my Beetle, the Gecko and some grass.  I want to add more grass and some leaves, but will work on them later.

Here is the piece so far.
And so closeups:
 A beetle
 The Gecko
and woven picot grass.

Hello Arlene, All the pieces are truly works of art. Love them all. They are all sooooooooooooo creative and your stitching is truly amazing. LOVE them. Hugs Judy

Arlene, When you say you wrap the wire do you do this by a buttonhole stitch?? What gauge of wire do you use? I hope you do not mind the questions. Thanks Judy

This project is absolutely beautiful. I would love to learn this technique, but I really need to stick with some long-term projects first. Theresa
