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.
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.
