Fools Gold 2 Round Robin - progress on Kerry's Block

I love this round robin, I am finally getting to do some gold work on Crazy quilt blocks.  Kerry has longed for one of my beetles, and now I finally have the chance to make her one.  So seek peek at her beetle.

Here are her wings finished, they are on a background of cream silk and white shiny chiffon. Cut chips of gold gimp and three lengths of gold purl edged with Soie De Paris no 2234 Silk. I wanted this beetle to be extremely regal as her block is stunningly beautiful and nothing short of regal would do.

So Kerry, here are your wings so far.
Yes there is a small chink cut out, but it will be mended before they get stitched on.  I haven't decided if it's a he or she yet.... we'll have to wait and see, may depend on the crown I give it.

That's just too beautiful, Arlene! You could make your little creatures into exquisite little brooches, too? Your work is stunning.
