My sweet friend Lorraine at Creative Daily has been celebrating her blog's first year anniversary by hostessing a wonderful month of giveaways. A prize has been posted for each week during the month of May. And Lorraine, who is a supremely gifted mixed media/textile artist, has been giving away several pieces of her work.
Imagine my surprise when I received an email from Lorraine, informing me that I'd won her first week's giveaway - a fantastic textile piece named School Days. I couldn't wait for the mail to arrive! And when I finally received her creative package, it was well worth the wait. Lorraine actually "wrapped" her stunning piece in hand-sewn cloth "envelope" printed in colorful alphabet letters.
Her attention to detail created a breathtaking piece. There are layers of hand dyed muslin, luscious lace, printed fabric, transfers, tulle and tiny brass embellishments to name a few. Fabulous!!!
The more I've looked at this piece, the more I see. Lorraine even trimmed this amazing piece with a border of black and white. But that wasn't all! I squealed with delight when I saw a package filled with vibrant color.
Lorraine included a package of her beautiful hand-dyed lace and fabric. I almost swooned when I saw that fantastic orange lace, and the chartreuse took me over the moon! I seriously think she's trying to entice me into breaking out my old Singer!
Once again, I am thrilled and humbled by a friend's generosity and very grateful that Lady Luck smiled on me. I'm so lucky to have won this magnificent giveaway. Thank you, thank you, Lorraine, for your kindness, and I hope you celebrate many more Blog-aversaries!!!
