Spring Pages for FAT


Here are my Spring pages finished just in time. I need to go to FAT and post them. They are different on the front and back. I can't wait to get pages from other traders and make them into a small fiber book.
The pink one is a web of threadwork I did in my workshop for Artist's Circle. I added a FAT bead to look like a cocoon wrapped on the spider web.
The second one reminds me of an ole' tv show - Please Don't Eat the Daisies. Unfortunately, on the other side the monkey decided to eat them. I added a great fiber yarn to its edges. And last but not least, I needle-felted daisies, found a cute yellow duck and sat him on top of another bead I made. The reverse side is a heart I made with stabilizer and added an inchie with a heart. Its very simple. I hope my partners will like the pages they receive.



SAD NOTE

I had to take my dog, Bear into the vet for minor surgery. But you know I am feeling bluesy bc he is such a companion. He will be there all day, but I get to pick him up after 5pm. The fee for a minor surgery is the price of a semester of college with books included. How does a person pay for a pet in this day and age. Take out a small loan!!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
I really like your pages, they will make a colorful tactile book.
I agree about the cost of the vet, ridiculous really.
