FOLLOWING MY HEART





Here is my 2nd piece of fabric art, and I can't decide what to do with it. I may keep it, or list it on etsy...what to do??? I started with a coffee stained piece of muslin, and then layered a vintage turquoise quilt piece, a vintage lace trim cut off a very old dress I bought years ago, but the dress had a hole in it. I had this dress for at least 20 years, and it was from the 30's, so I finally recycled it! I cut the top heart out of natural fiber . I used my stash of sari silk for the loop and to hang a vintage key from my stash. The buttons , the bone flower, and the beads, all vintage again. I glued the buttons on because they all still had the original thread in them, and I love the character of that. The crystal quartz briolette is new ! My mind is swirling with ideas...this one came together so fast...I hope I keep up! Thanks for visiting...I always appreciate your input.

Sharon, I think I gasped when I saw your new piece. It is FANTASTIC. I remember like yesterday when you first started making ATCs, and look how far you've come. Now that you've opened the door with fibers, there's no stopping you...it's like you've been creating with fabric forever because it's just so gosh darn great. List it on Etsy....I'd love to "reserve" it!

My vote is to list it on Etsy so someone can scoop up this bit of loveliness! It's so charming, Sharon. You've really done all those bits of lace and fabric justice! Bravo!
