"Dancing Fairies" Lacebook
has just been completed by me for
a special customer who requested a journal with fairies



My inspiration for this came from the most amazing
illustrator of children's books,
Arthur Rackham (1867-1939)



Layer upon layer of chiffon frame
ethereal images combined with


some vintage lace collars


binding with ribbon


and some coffee coloured guipure lace



with recycled lace beauty, silk organza



and printed chiffon surrounds this fairy
in this spread


arriving "home by dawn" adjacent to a pocket of a lace
handkerchief.


Printed and embellished silk pages


edged with laces capturing the light as the
sun shines through
and


adorned with more lace fabric walks
a fairy princess.





These gentle words close another book away from our world of
reality (we all know there are many others!).

This lacebook contains around 100 pieces of beautiful
lace and soft silk and other fabric pieces
layered upon layer!


Accompanying this lacebook will be this vintage
style pincushion 



where I have incorporated some vintage lace
and embroidered handkerchief


with machine stitching.


Thank you sincerely to all those expressing concern
over our recent brush with the bush fires here
where we live on the far south coast of 
Australia
we have since been blessed with some
beautiful rain which has
put our hearts and minds at peace
(for the time being anyway!).




We still have roses to pick but many like these have been
 scorched and singed by the feirce heat (50degC)
on the day of the bush fire
and then damaged by rain!
but we are still here
to see it!

♥♥♥ Love and hugs to all
xxx Suzy

AND to the reciever of this amazing journal. So faboloues in every way, filled with the beauty of "spiders web" laces and fabrics, so fitting to the world of faries and elves, so fragile to look, and such soft and lovely colours. A masterpiece again, my dearest Suzy, and with those exquisite drawings .

I knew I could get my lace fix here Suzy. I don't know how you find the time to make so much and with so much detail. Your sewing machine must fly like the wind.
I am glad you received some relief with rain. I know how desperately you needed it. We have had too much it seems this winter. It's never perfect this weather thing is it?
big hugs
Carole

Congrats to the lucky, lucky, winner!!

Your fairy journal is another masterpiece of beauty and grace. The pin cushion is amazing.

Your work always inspires me and I want to just jump in and create something.....the only problems I have are 1)I don't have the beautiful materials you have and
2)I can't sew....lol

Someday I hope to be lucky enough to win one of your amazing creations!!
