Oriental Scribblings

Last month's ATC swap theme was "Oriental".
Unfortunately, I was too busy with my stitchings and missed the deadline to join in so no pretty post for me, and I really do love it when little pieces of art come through the letter box.

I had forgotten that I had sketched some ideas for the swap, until yesterday's pagoda picnic reminded me. The one of the left is meant to be blossom, which would have been a background for the geisha-style lady on the right.

Also oriental in theme is this fabric my friend gave me a couple of weeks ago.
It is beautiful with tiny scenes all over it. Its too pretty not to share, and it may be a long time until I'm feeling brave enough to cut in to it.
Argh, the curse of pretty fabrics!!

Hope you all had the most wonderful of weekends

  1. That fabric is really pretty. It reminds of the cover of a journal I got in Hong Kong years ago. I can understand you not wanting to cut it!


Thanks for your comment!
It's so nice to hear what you think...
