Fibre in form and a confession

I have started an online class with Carol and Lynda as I said before. Here is what I have been working on, starting with tyvek samples...

and wovn strips of fabric

Textured paper and and machine couched threads


I am really enjoying the class and have done a ton of samples, but I don't want to bore you with doens of sample pics!!!! If you haven't signed up or Carol and Lynda's class - Fibre in form - then here's the link.
Now i found out the other day that i had left a freind down on a swap, over a year ago, maybe more I think I had asked to swap with the wonderful jo Wholohan. She sent me the most delicious card and somehow I didn't send her one in return. How unlike me, must have escaped my list, but guity as charged and so to make amends I made her this, slightly bigger than postcard sixe piece. It is hand dyed cotton, lace, fabric paper bird and copper heart. I am very pleased with it. I hope she likes it and the few other bits i am going to send her to ake up for being such a forgetful cow!

That's not like you to forget Carol
but I think Jo will be pleased with this little beauty.

I'm sure Jo will love the card, it's beautiful.
The Fibre in Form course looks very tempting. I've heard good reports of it round the blogs.

The card is lovely and worth the wait. I like your Tyvek samples.
