Magpie Girl 3 (13â€ x 23â€)
After the bright collection of magpie girl 1, I wanted something more subtle; so I gathered soft, romantic bits and baubles including charms I had from a long ago valentine charm swap.
I was thrilled to use tiny bits of marbled paper that Iâ€™d been keeping for years.
And torn bits of lace and hand dyed fabrics finally found a home on her wire dress.
I attempted to stitch doily patterns on the background – but sometimes just opted for swirls and spirals to fill all the space.
