Life Everlasting.

Last night I cleaned up my studio then I pulled out my fabric bins and starting looking for inspiration for my egg quilty for a little one on one art trade.

I had a lot of ideas for this egg ... I was toying with the idea of making a egg that opened up to revel a small chick.


but in the end I went with a more fabric meets Faberge :)

Life Everlasting
The back has a little pocket with a small pocket that hold the song lyrics to Life Everlasting for a old hymnal book. it is tied with tulle and has a feather tucked in :)
