Thank You Lisa x

This morning the post man delivered this beautiful fabric collage. Lucky Dip Lisa of New Zealand made this collage for Blog Action Day 2010 to the theme of Water. My gift also included a beautiful batik tree which was found in a charity shop and a card reading;

war is not healthy for your children and other living things

Lisa's blog is beautiful and has a green ethos that I find heart warming. Please pay Lisa a visit, you will like what you see :)


Recycled/repurposed tea towel, ladies handkerchief (clean!) silk scarf,net curtain,
fabric scraps, second-hand shop lace and ribbon, cotton doilie, white beads from an old necklace,
second-hand blue beads and netting. Hand stitched and attached to a piece of heavy cardboard recovered from an old book.

Thank you Lisa
I feel blessed this morning x
