Fibre-Fever Fabric pages

Today I received my Fibre Fever butterfly page from Maureen in Victoria.
Maureen and I are the only 2 Australians in this group, all the others live in Europe.
Maureen said she was inspired by the work of Annemieke Mein and you can tell which piece she is talking about.
What a beautiful job you have done Maureen.

This month I had to send a page to Ritva in Finland and her theme is "Water".
I am sure that Ritva has a blog but for the life of me I can't find it on our site.
I had this paper serviette that has a beach scene and seeing as we have such wonderful beaches in Australia I thought I would use it.
I have machine stitched around the umbrella and the deck chair and also the clouds.
I then blanket stitched around the border.
I hope Ritva likes it.

What beautiful butterflies. I like your beach scene too, it must look very different to Finnish waters! Cheers, Robin
