More fabric art .....

Hi everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Easter !!! I had a quiet one at my house. My son and husband went off to a horse show in South Australia for the weekend so I had lots of time to play around at home. Mind you I didnt get much art done at all.
Caught up with family and friends (and ate way too much.... and I dont just mean chocolate). Got my favourites...dark chocolate coated ginger, turkish delight easter eggs. Now its time to diet and behave! Visited my good friend Dot and saw all of the beautiful Amelia dolls that she has been making. They are GORGEOUS... I picked up my doll (Amelia 2) and she is now happily nestled with her other art doll friends. Must take a picture and share soon.

The above is the back of my page for Jo's fabric book. Lots of different fabics and fibres all intermingled with some embroidery. Was fun to do and I hope it finishes off the page well. On your left you can see the back of a little bejewelled tag I have hidden between the front and back page.

This next shot is of the page in situ in Jo's book.... snuggled into its little pocket. Due to fitting it into the pocket I had to take the tag out of it's little position so it would fit into the pocket (you can see the front of it popping out on the right in the pocket if you zoom in). So much fun and I think she looks very happy in Jo's book.

Looking forward to my next page arriving in the mail next month (I think it is Martha Brown's... now that will be fun too!!!) Check Martha's out on her blog.

Have a couple of Icicle dolls to work on this week for my friend Jill (Plaid Poppy) for a swap we are doing and also finishing off some flower panels for a swap on one of the yahoo groups. Will be a busy weekend of finishing I think.

Take care and enjoy the changing seasons... we are enjoying some much needed rain here!

I was blessed to see this lovely page in the flesh last weekend. Such beautiful work Jacky! And I love how you finished off the back of the page too (looks very effective).

So glad you like your Amelia!

I am so lucky! I went off to the post office today with a package.... I am excited for it to arrive. I wonder how long it will take, your on the other side of the world after all.

Love what your doing with fabric. I am feeling a little out of my league. This is beautiful. Do you use an embellisher? Just amazing!
