Spring is in the air.

The little fabric page is made on the theme "spring is in the air" and I combined the love of tulips ,"a very much spring flower for me",and the snowflings falling in our part of the world in March and April.These fabrics are hand dyed and I also made embroideries with beads and DMC pearl yarn.
