I've recently come back from a trip to Madrid, one of the days we went to Atocha railway station to go to Toledo. At Atocha station there was this pool with lots of turtles and a botanical garden.
My latest fabric sample came from Spoonflower, this one was printed on their new fabric - poly crepe de chine, it has printed very well.

Eight bird collages.
The backing paper was some waste paper from another project, from that long ago I can't remember the project. I like the pictures but I think they would look better with machine embroidery which I may do eventually.
This is a sheet of watercolour paper to which I have applied some raised letters by using olden course molding paste and a plastic stencil. Then sprayed with a couple of different colours of ink. What to do next? Draw? More paint effects? Collage?
This is my whitework embroidery coming along. There is a LOT of stitching on this.

I've used vintage fabrics on six of them, some very old.....I had a dress made with one of the fabrics when I was a child......and that is a long time ago.
I used a bib pattern by nana company.
