Linda and Rosie Big Art Adventure challenge

This week over at Linda and Rosies BIG ART ADVENTURE they challenged us to make a fabric arch.

At first I thought OH, I don't have any fabric and then thought it's a long time since I thread a needle ....gone are the days when you had to sew a ladder in your nylons.... and then we discovered stopping the run with clear nail varnish.... does anyone remember those days.... Calvados and Brandy Snap my favourite colours in stockings.... I am giving my age away well and truly

Anyway I found some fabulous Fat Quarters I had packed away I had bought them on holiday in Canada when I was staying with Denise July 2000 (hello Denise waving at you). Also in the box was some other bits of fabric which I couldn't bring myself to part with when I down sized into a 1 bedroom flat....I am sooo glad I held onto them as I love this arch and had so much fun creating it.
A tiny bit of sewing at the hem :) ...and then I frayed the rest as I wanted it to be shabby, I thought it suited the image...couldn't complete it without a few Stamps being included. Thanx for the challenge girls.
If you click on it to enlarge you will see better.

Thanx for looking.

ps Amongst the fat 1/4ers there was 1 I am sending to Sesga as I believe she would get more use out of it than me.
