fabric book pages

 This is a fabric book page I made for Anne in Germany.
Anne's theme is Oriental.( India/Persia) I made a festive elephant from India.
Hand embroidery on silk fabric. I have used Sassa lynne perle fine and silk embroidery threads.
The journey from Norway to Germany took five weeks for the elephant, I was very scared that it was lost in the mail. But yesterday Anne wrote that the envelope had arrived. Hurray!
Below a page that Helga in Germany made for me. It is a stained glass painting by Marc Chagall.
Helga saw this glass window in the church in Mainz. It is a detail from the window of king David with his harp.
Those pages are 15 x15 cm. (6")

Your elephant is so gorgeous! I wish I had thought of something like that for a friend who had a stroke - we're all making blocks, elephants or hearts, because she loves elephants. That is such a special page, lucky woman.
