So Far so Good


So Far so good,my little white vintage ladies book is coming along,this back page is something different,I was reading that you can use pressed flowers in Fabric Art,its so easy,just trapping the flower between a layer of cotton material then covering it over with fine netting then sewing down ,which i have done here,I am lucky that a friend pressed loads of flowers for me a couple of years ago,i put them away in a folder and forgot about them till reading this,had to try ! really looks lovely,just hope they hold up with the passages of time.

I have already bound my book ,now to just fill in the gaps and back pages with stamping and quotes.its a long job.........
