Layers of linen and lace

My Grow Your Blog prize arrived all the way from Jeanette in Australia yesterday!
Jeanette blogs at Scrappin' Happy and she makes beautiful things with fabric...
as you can see!
Jeanette signed it in the heart she affixed to the back!  I was so surprised at the size of this piece!
I expected it to be greeting card sized but instead it's the size of an antique scrapbook album!
With layers and layers of crazy-beautiful lace and embellishments!
This is just the kind of thing I find breath-taking!
I know, I know -- I am too lucky.  I am not worthy!  But I am excited!  Thank you so much Jeanette!

Laurie I'm so glad that your prize found you safely, isn't it funny how we envision something to look and then when we see it in person it's a surprise, hopefully it was a nice surprise for it to be bigger than expected :) Wishing you well
