Sunday Postcard Art - Fabric

Spent a lovely day yesterday with Cotswold Embroiderers Guild. The class was run by Carol Coleman who's recently published a book called Fibredance, making fabric jewellery. She's made some fabulous pieces so have a look at the website if you're interested in that sort of thing. Being a novice, I spent all day making this piece LOL. As this week's Sunday Postcard Art, set by Audrey Hernandez, is fabric, this seemed a perfect entry so I've made a background and I may well use it to decorate the cover of a journal.

This is so beautiful - I love the butterflies (The Postman variety, I think, that I used to take care of when I worked in a butterfly farm). Your work is as serene as watching them all day!

Wow! What stunning, creative and exquisite work. Your blog is full of treasures!! I guess it's not difficult finding inspiration in the Cotswolds. What a magic part of the world (I have spent quite a lot of time there on three different occasions when visiting from Australia).
