Fabric and Friends ......

Will you look at these beautiful fabrics and beads I received from my fellow fabric fiend... Dot. Arent they just so gorgeous and colourful? Wonderful surprise to find these in my mail box this week - lots of inspiration from these bold fabrics Dot!!! The picture below is a WIP. I am making a page for a fabric book round robin that I am involved in... this one will be for Magda in Germany. Magda's book is very vibrant and colourful so I hope she likes where I am heading with this page. Lots more stitching to do and further thought to the placement of the little knitted people (if I do end up using them that is). They theme for her book so far seems to be about "play". Will show the finished page soon.
The gorgeous Sesga from the UK sent me a beautiful package with one of her very special dolls...so cute and obviously made with lots of love. Sesga knows I love owls and has used a beautiful Japanese fabric with owls in my Lulu Doll and has also made me the most fantastic Kaffe Fassett owl.... just LOVE him Sesga!!!
And as if that wasnt enough Sesga sent me these beautiful fabrics.... being a fabricaholic I was soooo happy to have some new fabrics to add to my stash.
This most beautiful journal was made for me by Debbi Baker from WA. Another love of mine (other than fabric) is birds, so this is just perfect Debbi and I love the machine stitching. As I said before, my special quotes will be recorded in this journal.
Oh and what a treat to receive this wonderful package from the very talented (and lovely) Suze from the Pink Crayon Studio. So many wonderful art goodies.... I just cant wait to play with these ..... tags, inchies, stickers, I think my journalling with be including lots of these goodies in the near future. Thank you so much Suze, this was an amazing package to open as there just so many wonderful bits and pieces, plus the envelope is a work of art in itself!
In finishing I just want to say thank you to all of you out in Blogland.... wonderful online friendships have been made and the generosity of your gifts is heartfelt.
Wishing you much JOY this week (I think that is my favourite word ever!)

Jacky, I love your fabric page with the little knitted people. I am crazy about any fabric with a leaf motif so that strip of fabric on the right especially caught my eye.

Joy is one of my favorite words too! (what a GREAT word).

Really enjoyed reading this bright and cheerful post. You have received some lovely things. Sesga's doll is stunning (she is such a sweetie). And the art from Debbi is lovely.

So glad you liked the BRIGHT package of goodies I sent you (I love adding to your fabric stash he hee).

And Jacky - your WIP for Magda's book is wonderful. Love the background fabric (and that sun - very clever). And the little ladies look so joyous in their knitted dresses. I am very lucky to get to see this in person when you are finished(yipeee).

As always a post brimming with art and your lovely spirit.

Dot xx
