I have no idea what to call this piece. I've been adding to it for several days. Scraps of fabrics in cotton, velvet, silk...cut up part of a machine felted piece I did a while back; then tons of embroidery stitches and lots and lots of beads.

Saturday's Adventures on Sunday
We got up early Saturday morning and set off to visit some garage sales, as we hadn't done this in a while. We were gone from 8 a.m. and returned around 4 p.m. I got good goodies (fabrics from a quilter plus free batting, and buttons; a huge stamp of bamboo trees and some smaller stamps; books; and more than I can even remember right now. We hit some thrift stores too; lunch out; then visited book stores, art supply store, toy store where I found wonderfully bright embroidery threads... Came home and created this fabric and beaded post card for my daughter in law whose birthday it is. She loves angels, thus the wings. I hope she likes it. The wings are free motion sewn by machine, and I used fabric ink pens to color around it. Lots of beading too around the outer border. Did this embroidery while watching TV in the evening after dinner. Started beading it and will do more tomorrow. It's so relaxing to do. Just making it up as I go.
