Transfers for Lacebook

     Very much wanted to share the "beginnings" of an exchange with five others; it is a "Lacebook" collaborative. Finally I have my transfers completed. I have never done an all fabric book - so here's to a first! Our deadline to send off covers (f/b) and two pages is the 15th - since I will be in ANC it will be close if I don't finish before the 13th - but, then I can hand stitch on the weekend and send it off to NY (its next destination). This is exciting. Each of us will do two pages in each book.
     The "collaborators" are from New York, Oregon, Australia, Palm Springs via Victoria (Canada, a winterbird), and Idaho - with me, in Alaska. Themes vary - jazz era, a stitch in time, Victorian gypsy, young girl in Paris, Victorian couples, and Madonna Mary.
     I won't be posting again on the home page until my book is completed, but I am posting photos on my Mixed Media Page - so, check it out once in a while if you would like.

My Transfers (Yeah, I can now begin sewing!)
