WIP and Klimt...

This weekend I have been working on a piece for a new fabric book Round Robin that I am taking place in. Below is one of my pages, as a work in progress. I have since added more stitching to the background and will show you the photo of the finished page in another post. I also finished off a Klimt doll for a friend. I am still really enjoying making these dolls, so I hope you're not getting bored with them (have a few more I have to make for friends). WIP & Klimt Doll.

Close up of fabric page in progress.

Page in my journal which I created over Easter titled "Capturing Love".

The lovely Belinda of Metallic Dreams sent me the above art goodies in a surprise package which arrived this week. Soooo lovely to receive surprises in the mail and I do love art mail! The little blue face is a magnet which is now adorning my fridge and I will find somewhere special to hang her funky bird and little art doll.
Next weekend I am doing a Vintage Journal class with Ro Bruhn with my art friend Dot. .. sure to have some pictures for my next post. Always such a fun day doing a class with Ro!
Enjoy your week, hope its a colourful one!

Hi Jacky. Glad you like my quilt for my grandfather. It was so rewarding to make and it means an awful lot to my mother as you can probably imagine. Love these latest dolls you have made - especiually the red one with the elaborate head dress.
