Lots of new things to share this week. The hooked owl on the left is new. Had to take his photo with his buddy...I think they look best in groups. These will probably go to a local shop who asked for some colorful owls.
Here he is all by himself.
And the hooked robin finally got some legs, not to stand on because he's a wall hanging type birdie.
And this funny fella has a beret from a neighbor that just fit perfectly...he still needs some wings but was ready for a quick photo today. The cool fabric is a decorator sample that I picked up at Art From Scrap.
They have baskets full of great samples for 25 cents each. I try and go every couple of weeks to see what's new. Last week I found some nice pieces of linen that I think may turn into rabbits.
I love the clothing from Gudrun Sjoden and every once in a while I order something just for fun. This winter I purchased 2 linen artist's tops that I wear all the time. Anyway they are having a contest online right now....it's using their products by recycling them somehow to make something different. I couldn't resist and made three things! I made the cat guy above using a Gudrun sweater and the collage on canvas below from a paper mailbag. The third thing I made is the journal cover using a plastic mailer. I fused the plastic to some grocery bags and then cut them out with pinking shears. I sewed them to a piece of indigo handmade paper from Anthropologie that I bought a year ago because it was so beautiful. I folded it over to make a fun cover for my Smash journal.
Go to their website if you are interested and join in the fun! I could make about 5 more things but I better just stop here...I have rug hooking to do!
Here are the two chenille bunnies that finally got faces and are now in a shop waiting for new homes for Easter.
My copies of the newest "Stuffed" magazine arrived! So fun to see my article on the little house pin cushions in person. They did a great job. Somehow everything looks better in the magazine than here at home! The houses in the photos are the ones that I took to Artfest last year and went home with the attendees on vendor night. I am still working on the few I have left...slowly but surely.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful and creative week!
