Wings and feathers and stitches and...more stitches

Okay - I had to share a quick little sneak peek of what I've got goin on here with Clarence. I came up with a wing design over the weekend. But I didn't figure out anything specific. So I kinda just started cutting out pieces and...winging it...HA!! (sorry)...with no real plan for the details. I was hesitant at first because I wasn't quite sure how it was going to come together. Like - I didn't even know in my head how I wanted it to look. I just knew I wanted multiple colors/fabrics - like two or three or four - and lots and lots of feathers and therefore lots of little contrasting stitches.

So what do you think? It's a faaar cry from finished but you get the rough idea. I think these wings are going to be pretty cool. (Oh, and it didn't show up on my camera - so in case it doesn't show up on your screen - there's actually three colors of feathers - black sparkle, blue and purple.)

Cassandra....this is going to be even more amazing than I thought! The wings I had in mind were nothing like this (which is great, because I can use my wing design for an ornament I was thinking of making without feeling guilty) but these are perfect. I can't wait to see him in his entirety. I'm so excited I am actually bouncing up and down in my chair!!!!!
