I'M BACK and a sneak peek

I promise to visit everyone and catch up on all the happenings in YOUR lives.  But first, I want to thank each of you for visiting and your kindness while I was offline.  The repair person from AT&T said the problem was at the pole, which is out back of my house.  I'll take a photo of it one of these days, but right now, I want to catch up with YOU!!

I told you I was tired of pink (not a color I really like anyway).  This is for Dianne in our 6 player International Swap and her theme is words and numbers in the vein of Alphabetica.  This was the first page I created, because I know how much Dianne likes fabric (and PINK).  I dyed the lace, seam binding, and fabric using Staz-on reinkers and rubbing alcohol.  I created the background on a 12" X 12" sheet of heavy scrapbook paper, then cut it to 8.5" X 11" and folded it in half to fit her requirement of 5.5" X 8.5".  Once both sides were created, I sewed the folded ends together.

Thanks to each and everyone again who has been so kind to me while I was offline (for what seemed like FOREVER).  I'll be by to visit tonight.

I love that you added those splashes of other colors, especially the orange. Its a color combo that I think works really well together, and takes a bit of the edge off of pink. Glad you're back online. :) Hugs-Erika

So pretty Elizabeth! I love the fabric bits and your stitching. Something I hope to try more of when I get home in a few months. Thanks for stopping by my blog as always with your lovely comments.

Another original piece, love the pink and pieces of fabric.
Isn't it great to be back on line, and yes it does seem as if one is off-line for ever.
Thanks for visiting with your very thoughtful comments.
