Fabric page swap

Recently Val asked me if I wanted to do a fabric page swap with her and of course I said yes.
Val wanted a page that was 5" x 5" of any theme and she would make me a 6" x 6" butterfly page.
I received Val's page last week (it only took 4 days from the UK) but I wanted to wait until she received mine before I blogged about them.
Val has used some hand dyed fabric as the background and she has free machine embroidered the butterfly and flower on it (click on the picture to get a better look at her fabulous stitching).
What a beautiful page Val and your butterfly is perfect.

This is the page that I sent to Val.
Most of the laces on this are antique except for the two motif ones and the piece of wide ribbon on the left side is also antique.
The lovely wide piece of lace on the right side came off an old wedding dress remnant that someone gave me.

This was a great swap and we will do another in the not too distant future.

You're right....that butterfly is perfect!

When I looked at the lovely page you created all I could think of was how great that lace would be as a stencil!! I'm bad! :-)

Val said...

I'm so pleased you liked the butterfly - I'm absolutely delighted with my antique laced 'sweetie'!
