When I went to Birdsong III last month, it was my fourth visit to enjoy Karla's hospitality for an art event, so I wanted to bring something special for her to let her know how much I appreciate all she does.
You know how I love making these fabric books; this time, I had the "base" of a book I'd made a few months ago, and I started adding to it to personalize it for Karla.
I included some images I printed on fabric that Karla has shown on her blog or on Facebook, of her sweet little grand daughters.
I tied in a bird tag (of course), and finally "signed" it with some black French laundry tape with my initials on it.
Here's the back cover...
then, I packaged it all in a cloth envelope that I embellished with burlap and ribbon.
She seemed to really enjoy it; I know I loved making it for her!
