The changing colors of the leaves on the ornamental pear tree in our front yard inspired the palette for this collection of figures in the nature series. Some leaves turn a bright green, others yellow and still others orange and red. When my husband Joe went on a business trip to Minneapolis, he stopped at a quilt store to buy some fabric for me. The fabric packet he picked was what I used for these fairies.

The Garden Tea Fairies were part of the IDEX art installation. To see photos of that FOLLOW ME HERE.
