Fabric Pages

Below are some fabric pages that I have swapped out.....I enjoyed making each of these and really like what I received in return.....First is one I made for Ritva, her theme was Art Nouveau......this is my interpretation of her theme......
 This is the book page Ritva sent out to me.......my theme was  Victorian.....
The next book page I made for Helga B......her theme was Fairies/Mystics and I chose to do a fairy......
 This is the page that Helga B made for me.......my theme for this one was peacocks.......he is so lovely...


The next page was made for Margreet and her theme was butterflies......this is the page I made for her.....I used flower leaves to make the butterfly with and then decided to put it with a flower......
 This is the page that Margreet sent out to me........this photo does not do it justice as it is really rich in color....very beautiful......
 This is the last of these for today......this one is for Maureen who chose Autumn for her theme......I chose these beautiful leaves as my interpretation of her theme along with the background fabric.....autumn is one of my favorite times of the year as the colors of the trees are so rich and vibrant here......
 And this is the page that Maureen sent out to me.....I only recently found this page......it had been sitting in the envelope since sometime in November of 2010.....I don't know how I had missed it, but I did......this is one of my favorite pages.....the body of the peacock is stumpwork I am guessing......he is fabulous.......

I have more book pages to share in the coming weeks.....so come back and have a look see.......

Until Next Time,
Wendy

Little Quilt Finally Arrives

Finally the little quilt that I made has arrived at its new home way down under......I was getting worried about it and thought I may have to make another one.....below is a reminder pic of the quilty I sent out to Bree......I did raw edge applique and then machine stitched around the outside of each leaf......then I took some mint green perle 8 cotton floss and quilted around each leaf again.....I like how this little quilt turned out.....the background fabric is mint green and really pretty in person, this pic does not do it justice....
below is a pic of the quilt that Bree sent out to me......
 And a closeup of the Dresden Plate:
I love the colors she chose for me.......it is now hanging in my studio.....I am working on finishing up some more fabric pages that I had gotten behind on because of life moments and will be posting about them soon.....

Until Next Time,

Pin Cushion Swap

Hi everyone, hope your week has went well.......mine has been busy.......and hot!!! It is so hot here that you feel as if you might melt when you go outside.......other than that all is good......I received my pin cushion swap today.....Wendi  had my name.......she sent me two great pin cushions, a pin keep and some embroidery thread.......they are so me!!!! Lots of fun color and will be well used in the studio....
 I will post what I sent out to my partner when she receives it in the mail......which hopefully will be soon....I have touched base with everyone and all the pin cushions are in the mail......so everyone should be getting theirs soon.......I have been asked if I will be hosting another round and the answer is yes.......as soon as all the pin cushions are delivered we will do another swap.......would you like to swap random pin cushions or should we have a theme? Let me know and we will take it from there......
Until Next Time,
Wendy
