The theme of this months ATC swap on Fibre Fever was "seashore".
This ATC I received from Catherine in Australia.
                                   And this one I made for her!

It's finished!

Here you see the dragonfly I made on my "lady with roses" crazy quiltblock. 

I am not totally satisfied, but I think it is good enough for a first try!

Work In Progress Wednesday

This week I added some more seam treatments to my Lady with roses block.
The half cirkles are made of handdyed variegated pearl cotton, the green is a handdyed twisted rayon, both come from LES Designs.
The pink lazy daisies are made of Edmar Lola rayon.
 I am trying something new right now, can you guess what I am working on?

Last weekend I visited a collectors fair and found this wonderful card for my Jeanne d'Arc collection.

It was made in the late 1800's and you could find these in a box of chocolates.

Also I found these lovely postcards from the early 1900's. 

I just love the style of these ladies clothing.

Wouldn't they look great as the middle of a crazy quiltblock?
