Thought it was about time to get on here and update my blog. Last two weeks have been a bit busy with family obligations-My nephew had his first band concert this month-he's playing the saxophone. I was impressed on how good they sounded for just 3 months into band~ way to go Patrick!
The first image shown here is a fabric piece i did for a friend for Christmas. The image is a bit shiny due to the transfer paper, but you get the idea. I originally tried using some muted pinks but they just weren't working, so i grabbed a red i had nearby-and then the piece just flowed. When i had it all put together and finished I realized "no wonder the pinks weren't working-black/white/red (off white) are her colors"I wasn't even thinking of that when i was working on it-but my subconcious sure was!
This plate of goodies was a gift to me and my family. Needless to say they taste as good as they look. The presentation was wonderful too as i now have a felted star ornament to boot!
This piece was done for another friend for Christmas. I knew what colors i wanted to use for her-creams/black/browns-her colors. The fabrics came together pretty quickly-it was the image i had a harder time deciding on. Normally i would pick fabrics based on the image, but not this time. I found this image last week at an antique mall and knew she would work. I decided to add the "pop" of red inside the tin-because it is something that she would not do. :) The other pictures are just some details of the finished piece.
