Fibre Fever swaps for November

I received this needle felted page from Marja for our November swap on Fibre Fever.
It is so well done with circles of wool felted to the background and so many tiny beads scattered all over it-plus the cut out butterflies--I love it.
I think Marja has a blog but I can't find any details about it.

I had to make a page for Margreet whose theme is "with a song in my heart".
I used a stamp to print the heart and the music notes that wandered through the heart.
I hand embroidered the heart and used the sewing machine to stitch the music and then added French knots to the music in the appropriate places.
The cream piece of lace is from a collar and the black is some antique lace that I had .

This is the 11th swap so far from such a lovely group of ladies.

Yummy colors on the needlefelted piece. And your Song is stunning. It's an old song and your vintage interpretation is well taken.

embroidering over the stamped image is a clever idea, and it looks really good, too!
