To show my gratitude for all the goodnes I find everyday ,talking with my friends 
on blogs and on FB -----
and also to celebrate my 600 followers  I`m having a giveaway!


This collage is made for ONE OF YOU  to win!!!

It is mainly of fabric...but I also added Tyvek and paper.

I used old and new materials -all of them coloured in tea,
or dyed with other nature plants-

I used one of my favorite Paper Whimsy images - printed
on fabric. It is app.  12 inches long and app.8 inches wide.

There will be other small surprices added ,--but for now this will be the 
real giveaway ...


Also just wanted to show you what I made from My sweet friend DAWN `s
wonderful Fairy Shoe pattern, which  you can find clicking her name here  above!!

It is a lovely little 4 inch long shoe, and it is  so easy to follow her instructions !!
I made mine in black velvet, with silver pattern...my first christmas
piece this year.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your more than wonderful comments
those last 14 dayes, I treasure your friendship so very much all!

With love and hugs from Dorthe
