This evening I have been working on a page for a fabric book round robin that I'm in. The theme for Geni's book is flamingos. I have to admit to having had the book in my possession for a couple of weeks now but I've found the theme a bit daunting so have been putting off getting started. The posting deadline for this round is now looming so I just knew I had to get started. I've managed to finish one side of my page this evening and I'm pretty pleased with the way it's turned out.

I decided to cheat and make a flamingo silhouette, so here is my 'Flamingo at sunset' Actually I had a lot of fun making this in the end. I used some of the wonderful orange fabrics that Harriett sent me in my secret sister package for the sky, horizon and water. Added some free motion stitching to try and emulate the ripple effect of water and beaded round the setting sun for a little bit of added sparkle. Finally finishing off with a lace edge just to soften it all up abit.

I haven't actually fixed this page in the book yet. I have to make two sides to complete the page and will wait and see what my other effort turns out like before I decide which is going to be the front and which will be the back, lol!

Wonderful image - especially like the way you used the beads to add a different texture without distracting from the image strength. Great work :)
