Final Fibre Fever Pages

February sees the final swap of our pages in the Fibre Fever Group.
My swap partner that I had to send to was Cobi and her theme was "Haiku" which is a Japanese form of poetry.
When this swap was first started I had never even heard of a Haiku.
We had to write the verse on the back of the page and then interpret it on the front.
I wrote a Haiku about a butterfly which meant that I sent Cobi a butterfly page which just so happened to be my theme for the swap.
The background is a piece of silk fabric and I added a lace butterfly that I added stitching to.
I added a flower because my Haiku also mentioned flowers.
Now I have to confess that I forgot to take a photo of the back of the page with the verse on it.





Today I received my page from Helga in Germany.
Thank you Helga for my final butterfly page--I love it and now I have to think about how I am going to construct my "Butterfly" book and I also have to make the covers for it.



A big "thank you" to all the ladies who have participated in this swap.
I not only have all my wonderful butterfly pages from them but I have made some fabulous friends as well.
Thanks ladies.
****Rain update*****
You will all be pleased to know that over the weekend we have had 48 hours of drenching rain--which has soaked into the ground and my Erosion Bundles as well.
In fact the bundles got so wet and heavy that I had to go out and move them further up the trees because they were almost touching the ground.
Yee-hah.

I love your butterfly Doreen and the one you received. Glad you've had some rain at last - the erosion bundles will be eroding nicely now.

The butterflys are lovely....and now you may have enough green to attract real ones to your garden?
Ha! I forgot about my erosion bundle...I'll have to go check.

The butterflies are beautiful....I especially like the lacy one on the lavender background but then I'm sure you already knew that!

Great news about the rain!!
