A Gift

Okay, I have been showing you pictures of this for about a week.  You know making my point about the stitches and all so I thought you might want to see pictures of the completed project.

This project started off as a gift of the peacock feather, then became a swap.  Of course I can't do anything easily.  Everyone else had made their projects with complementing colors in the fabric to go along with the peacock feather, as you can see I did not.  Everything I do is a challenge.  How else are you to grow?

As you can see from the picture above I used a piece of a vintage linen.  That hand appliqued rose was too beautiful to just throw away and the lady that I made this for?  Lets just say I knew that she would like it.

A picture of the project put together.  Yes, it is a project book.  A rather big one it is too.

Here is what the inside of the book looks like.  It took me a while to find the fabric for the inside of this book.  Yes, the inside complements the feather nicely doesn't it?

I hope that you have enjoyed looking at this project.  I am off on another.
