"A Girl on a Bike"

This past week I got spring fever with the 50 degree temperatures. It made me want to hop on my bike and go for a ride! This morning the ground is covered with snow once again, it will be a few more weeks before I go for a bike ride!
The feeling I had inspire this piece.

Once I get some of the basic stitching done I love to indulge in my beads for embellishments!

So here are the first two larger pieces I've been working on. I'm still not sure if I will frame them or if this will be the start to my fabric journal. I'm so indecisive. Maybe I'll wait until the spring when I can go outside and take some really great photos of them in the natural spring sunlight and then I can make another postcard collection?


  1. i love that girl on a bike!
    i too just had spring fever...
    & now we're getting over a foot of snow!
    oi vey!! xo

  2. Overnight we got another 8" of the white stuff -- sooooo discouraging! I want daffodil shoots!!! I must say . . . your beautiful, vibrant, colorful girl on a bike took me to a happy place today! Hugs, Terri xoxxo

  3. These both turned out soooo gorgeous Rebecca. I can't wait to see what you decide to do with them...

    I have mentioned you yet again as an inspiration source over at my blog...You really do inspire me continually! Stop by and see what you've done now!


  4. I love her Rebecca, radiating happiness and spring. I am looking forward to see what you do with these.

  8. Hi Rebecca. :) My, what beautiful pieces you've got here! Both so exquisite with gorgeous details. I always admire those who can create works such as yours...probably because I can't! :))

  10. LOVE her! Your talent is sooo inspiring! I hope you are enjoying your day! xo

  11. Oh Rebecca, your girl on the bike is gorgeous!
    I like your idea of making them into a fabric book. I would do that. :)
    I have most of my beads in boxes like that too.
    I love beads. :)
    Hugs and can't wait to see more.

  12. These are outright delicious! Can't tell you which is my favorite!
    All my best-
