April Fool!

Meet April! She is a miniature fairy - about 4" from head to toe and she will adorn the cover of my latest work in progress - a fabric book!
The pages are made from silk noil which I have tea dyed and I have free machine embroidered the words. I will add found objects and other embellishments on to the pages.  The only problem is assembling the thing afterwards.  Originally I had thought I would just put the pages right sides together and then turn inside out but I don't think I will be able to do that if I have the found objects attached. So I will have to have a bit of a think on that one.
I wanted this page to signify the night time and so I used dark navy silk dupion and I have to say I am really pleased with the result. Although I don't think my photograph does it justice!
