A week or so ago, I had so much fun cutting apart older work from my PLAYA Series and transforming it into the decorative background for colorful, skeletal leaves.  The leaves were donated to me by my Canadian fiber friend Margaret Blank.  The frames were cut and built by my Steve from leftover pieces of picture frame moulding in our garage.  Each one has a bit of free-motion embroidery and most have hand-stitched beads.

I'm so delighted to see what you've done with these, Susan! My mind just wouldn't go there. :-) P.S. Thanks for the pretty thank-you card - I might have to frame it!
