Fireflies in the secret garden...

This is the fabric page I have just finished for Martha's "Secret Garden" fabric book in our round robin swap. Martha's book inspired me to make these funky fireflies as I could just imagine them buzzing around excitedly once they had found their way into the secret garden. I did try and get a close up of the details in the background, but I am not the best at close up photography (they always turn out blurry...mmm need more lessons). Just zoom in for a better look. I hope Martha likes this colourful page. This is the back of the page for Martha, note the more muted colours this time ..... There is an organza pocket which holds a beautiful laser cut silver tree, which is actually a bookmark that Martha can either use later or leave as a hidden treasure in the pocket of her book.
I had a lot of fun with the fabrics and stitching for these pages.....Now onto the next one. Today my pages arrived for Patti G's book...... I am sure you will all love it and I am looking forward to working in it very soon, more fabric pages coming soon (and these are a beautiful shape).
Have a wonderful week......
