My Work in Progress...Gorgeous Fabric Book

Hello again, well I've spent the best part of the last couple of rainy days absorbed in making Nancy's Fabric Book. I'm enjoying this so much it's like "painting with fabric and thread". For this you're given a basic guide to follow and then you use your own creativity selecting images, fabrics, laces threads and embellishments to create this little artwork. Eventually the pages are all stitched together to make a fabric book. Here are some pics of the work in progress. 
Lots more work to do on it yet, so will keep you posted with pics of the finished work.
Whatever the time in your part of the world hope your day has been wonderful.

Until next time, Happy creating!!

Shabby Fabric Cone

Hi everyone, well it has been a long while between posts. Have had our daughter and her boyfriend visiting for six weeks, was just like a breath of fresh air for us, being empty nesters now. Sadly, they have now returned to the U.K. to continue on their work/travel adventures. Oooh to be young again!!!

I've been working on another of Nancy's projects from her Parisien Dreams online class. I love her classes as the projects are always sooo beautiful and the instructions and friendly online help make it all such fun. I hope you like these pics, this is a fabric cone, with vintage lace, buttons, seam binding ribbon, lace an old image from Paper Whimsy (they have such beautiful images). Katharine (our daughter) gave us a beautiful thankyou card, before she left and it had this quote on it from Oscar Wilde, which I really loved, so I decided to add it to the front of the cone just to make it extra special. Hope you like it too.
You can view Nancy's beautiful work on her blog

Have a wonderful evening everyone, be back soon, Robyn xxx
