Mary's new class - Collage coterie

Hello my friends,
I'm a bit behind with my posts and visiting your blogs but I'll catch up with you all by next week.
I signed up for Mary's new class Collage Coterie and it's as wonderful as the Vintage GB class. So much fun. Here is a tag I made for  the first lesson.

Patti and me exchange belated Birthday gifts and here is what my dear friend, Patti spoiled me with.

                                       This beautiful apron made by  Michelle Palmer.

This gorgeous fabric bag. Do you notice  the little birdi charms? Patti does the most beautiful fabric collages with lots of layers. So when we got together she showed me how to layer those fabric collages.
The results of that you saw in my last post - thank you all for your nice comments.
As always thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to leave me a comment.
Wishing you all a great day and a wonderful weekend.
