My own version of Beth`s mini gothic quilt

I still haven`t had time to make all the lovely projects,from
But yesterday after finishing 3 angels, I gave myself permission
to make this mini Gothic quilt.
As I was in a hurry, and did not have any image from the workshop printed on fabric,I chose something ,quite different--a beautifull PaperWhimsy girl.

I used a most beautifull old kerchief with tulle,
and a wonderfull old handembroidered flacon. I added a little "bag" as the leather purses I have ,was far too,big!
Inside the pocket ,is two small tags.One a copy of a beautifull tag, I recieved from Diane,in a swap
we just did.I will blog about it when she has recieved my swap packet.
The piece is all white, and cream, --only photografed upon a green velvet chair!!!

Last week I found a ,for me , new shop :  My Broken Art Etsy shop
Where I bought a bunch of rusted old treasures, to use in collages--
but also this lovely roses

and a piece of handstamped and handcolored ribbon.
the color is much more beautifull, pinkisch,than shown here,
but you can see the how beautifull the background , and the stamps are.

How was / is your day, dear friends? I hope,- happy.

love and hugs,

It looks like a perfect little bridal photo to me. Just lovely. You must have figured out how to make more hours in the day with what you accomplish. xox Corrin

Dorthe die Collage ist ein Traum, die Spitze ist der Wahnsinn. Die Stoffrosen sind ja auch genial gut. Da bekommt man richtig Lust was aus Stoff zu machen. Mein Tag war schön ... und sonnig :) Hugs Alexandra

Beautiful mini quilt piece, Dorthe! The picture is precious!

Having a knitting get-together with some friends this evening, and with my daughter, Taylor, over at http://taylorkay1522.blogspot.com/. Very much looking forward to it! Don't get much knitting done in the summer so it will be good to start up again!

Have a wonderful evening!

Hi sweetie, Deine Collage ist wieder ganz hinreißen! So ein schönes Taschentuch mit Tüllspitze habe ich vorher noch nie gesehen. Die Schleife passt wunderbar zu dem süßen image.
Sehr hübsche Sachen hast Du Dir gekauft.
