One of the products I sell are fabric goodie bags. Bags stuffed full of beautiful vintage fabric scraps suitable for patchwork, quilting, applique and other small textile projects. A customer of mine, Jayne Ward, makes the most beautiful textile pictures. She said that when the scrap bag arrived it was like Christmas and Birthday rolled into one.
When she sent me photos of some of her pictures I was blown away by them and I suggested a swap, a supply of fabric scraps for a piece of her wonderful artwork. Luckily for me Jayne said 'yes' and, after receiving the fabric scraps she made the following pieces.

I was told to choose one and I am now the proud owner of the last one, 'Blue jugs', which is now at the framers and there is a space reserved on my kitchen wall for it. It is even more beautiful in the flesh and I couldn't stop gazing at it. I am one lucky girl!
If any of you would like a piece of work by Jayne, please contact me for her email address as she doesn't have a website at present.
