THANKYOU DOREEN!!!

During the week, I received a little packet of treasures from Doreen. Everytime I put my hand in, MORE treasures came out. Doreen is very generous with her knowledge and is so talented!! Doreen you are also a treasure!! Thankyou so much...

This is fabric paper, painted and distressed tyvek, plus some paper clay pieces made from various molds.

This is lots of really yummy fabric.

This is rust dyed fabric, some satin ribbon which has been embellished and some beautiful threads.

AND, what about this!! Isn't it just gorgeous!!! "Fireworks" is felt with mulberry bark, tyvek, tyvek beads, FME, machine whipped cords and beads. This photo doesn't do this justice - the textures and the colours are just beautiful!!! I'm going to frame this......

THANKYOU DOREEN!!!!!!!

I too got a parcel from Doreen. She is a lovely lady. Among ther things she sent me a fantastic cord that she had made on the overlocker. I've begged her to do a tutorial on it, I know lots of stitchers would be very interested.

Thankyou everyone for your lovely comments. Jacqueline I can't find an email or blog address for you, so will answer your question here: The mulberry bark has been dyed - I've just recently bought some dyed stuff too - haven't used ityet.
