Inspiration occurs at the most inconvenient times!!!
Driving in the car, my mind wondered to the "Flower Fairies" again and the concept for my 'Needlework Fairy' suddenly became clear. She'd wear a thimble as a hat. Fairies have wands... her wand could be a needle. A floss bobbin would make an ideal fairy bodice... what other stitchy accessories could she have?
The only piece of 'scrap' paper that was close to the driver's seat was the back of an old snap-shot. I took advantage of the next parking lot to make the scribbled note you see in this picture.
