Even it really is not "allowed" for me ,to sew anything else than dolls (well almost) I had to make this collage today- I missed putting fabric`s and laces together-and also had sold many of the collages in my shop,SOOO I took time for this.

It is all fabric- no paper- the bird is made with gel-transfer- and the text and mark is copied on fabric, in my ink-printer.I used old,and new laces as well.

And after visiting a dear friend Diane  
at Diane Knotts Musings I was so inspired to sew an apple--this is my winter apple, with
"ice" on to top.

I have got some awsome gifts resently- and this is from my very dear friend- Paula.
Paula embroidered the little pincussion after an old pattern- isen`t it a beautiful  piece.Her stitching is fantastic.

Sweet Paula also sewed the  pumpkin to me, -it now rests on top of a tarnished silver candlestick.
and in front of the pincussion is two halloween tags also from Paula.
Thankyou so much dearest angel friend, you are in my thoughts .

And look at this so beautiful envelope-it was made of Robin- whom have become a very dear friend also.
Robin has an Etsy shop, and I LOVE shopping there- go take a look at her crasy and beautiful creations

Inside this wonderful packaging waits the sweetest gift for me...

Spool-doll Trixie- isen`t she just to love?

Robin so generously gifted me with Trixie when I ordered her bigger sister :Herbs-here with a bird from home- BOO.
Thankyou Robin dear- and congratulations with today.
The pumpkins behind is another story ,coming later.....

Nine o`clock- time for evening tea - and time for wishing you all a lovely day,-or night-
I`m so happy for all the new follovers whom are visiting my blog-
many of you don`t have a link to your blog on your profile page ,so I can`t find you- I`m sorry about that.
Love and hugs, to all

Skønne gaver du har modtaget, Dorthe.

Og hvilken bedårende collage, du har lavet! Hvor er der bare mange lækre detaljer. Jeg kan især godt lide, at du har brugt så mange forskellige slags blonder og stof. Og det lille stykke træ foroven giver en rigtig flot kontrast til de yndige blonder.

Rigtig god aften og også weekend, som jo lige er om hjørnet.

Oh Dorthe - I hardly know where to start~~ your newest journal is exquisite - I simply love the bird - the beautiful way you used that lace~~ it is embellished perfectly and so gorgeous. Truly - it is unbelievable - it is so lovely. Is it possible that this might be the most beautiful one so far?

And your winter apple - and the ice!!! I love the way you made this- the ice is the perfect touch!

Your gifts are indeed wonderful- how generous your friends are to think of you so kindly. You will treasure each little gift I know.

Dorthe - I do not think that you ever stop - your shop must be so very beautiful~~

I hope we will get to see it again this Christmas~

suziqu's thread works said...

Finally I am here my sweet friend.
Don't you feel wonderful having a little break from dolls to create such a gorgeous collage? Your lacework and bird image just beautiful all coming together with your trademark of some driftwood! I hope it sells very soon!

How kind of dear Paula making those beautiful gifts for you - the pincushion so beautifully stitched, the pumpkin and cards when she is the one to be receiving at this time!!!
A very dear friend to us - we are so lucky to have her in our life!

And Trixie finally united again with her sister and Boo - she won't feel lonely now! Robin is a very creative doll artist and a great person.

I am wishing for you my dearest friend
more warmth from that light sunshine.
Enjoy this day and enjoy this moment.

Love you Dorthe,
Suzy xoxoxox

min kære ven Dorthe,

Thank you so very much for your Lovely post! The collage is fabulous! I am going to have to figure out what a gel transfer is. It looks amazing on there. Everything you make is so pretty, feminine and has a other world quality to it. I love it all. Thanks for being my sweet friend Dorthe. Love you. Robin

Lululiz said...

You have done it again, Dorthe, your collage is just gorgeous! The image of the bird is really lovely and you embellished the collage so beautifully with the lace and fabrics. I must look into this gel transfer business, I have no idea how this is done.

Ana Márquez said...

I love those beautiful things! :-) Thanks for sharing with us. Hugs!

Claudia said...

Hello sweet girl! I love the collage. You are really good at the gel transfer, I can never get it to look that good. Wish you were here to give me some tips. It's really beautiful Dorthe. I love your gifts from Paula & I'm headed over to check out Robin's etsy now.

It should be a lost of beautiful work if you only made dolls. Ofcourse your dolls are beautiful but so are your collages. I should miss them so i'm glad that you create this one. It is so beautiful with all the details and lace. Love your bird collages i treasure mine.

Have a nice day
