I made this page for heini in the first Fabric Art Journal Pages Swap. She had listed "nature" as one of her themes, and as that covers much of what I like to do, it gave me a lot of leeway. "Koivu" is "birch" in Finnish, which is where heini lives. I was working on this in the dead of winter, it seemed an obvious choice!

The trees and background are linen and cotton, and are held down mostly by the bark detail and limbs embroidered in cotton floss. The letters are metal brads. Overall dimensions are 4 in. by 6 in.

I hear crunching snow every time I look at this.  And the dimension is wonderful.  I feel like I'm looking out a window Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

This is lovely! I thought the word at the foot of the page looked Finnish, but wasn't sure. My Grandma's from there but I don't really know any of the language, just the general look of it.
Such crisp details...
