I have just finished a small project for a new friend from New Zealand. Recently, I was approached by Debbie, a wonderful gal ,who had left some very nice comments on my blog. She asked if I would be interested in participateing in a small swap for a card. Debbie is a wonderful artist and does amazing illustration work- you can get a glimpse of her wonderful work on her BLOG. I have not done many swaps lately and I am always thrilled to meet new like -minded creative artists, so I took up the challenge. Inside one of my floral stationary cards ( the card was to be 4x6) I tucked this small quiltie. I have been so in the stitching mood lately and I had just dyed up a handful of various scraps and was anxious to put them together in a small project. The turquoise and green base of this quiltie is some of my collaged and paint scraped fabric/paper. On top of this base I layered some pink/orange cotton and then some pink/yellow/orange lace. I used embroidery floss to do all of the hand stitching and finished it off with a small heart charm. I backed the entire piece witha piece of a linen bureau scarf that has the wonderful hand crocheted edge on it. The piece is only about 5x5 square and hangs from a piece of rayon ribbon. I hope that Angela likes it! You can visit Angela at her Blog, should you wish to travel down under!
Angela has already gifted me with her creation and as soon as I get some good pictures of it, I will share them with you!
