My favorite colors!
I’m moving on to making something new starting today. These ladies have been a blast!
Sometimes it can be a VERY long time between me considering something and it actually getting made. It might be nearly 10 years ago that I drew out a playing card lady and put some fabric together in a ziplock bag. I’m sure this lady isn’t exactly what I imagined originally but I’m happy and will work on this design some more.
My blog is 15 years old today. How crazy is that! We’ve come a LONG way together.
Here is my windy day Lady pillow doll.
She is reminiscent of this lady that I made so many years ago (April 2010!). Also, my tiny world pincushions. Someone messaged me an amazing photo of a chair with appliqued town imagery and I’d link to it but I couldn’t find any artist attribution so that doesn’t feel right. Anyway.
edited- I found it! Cityscape chairs.
She has her cashmere hat and scarf for this blustery day.
Details of the houses-
And here is one more photo from when I was working on her. You can see that I tried out some other ideas that didn’t make it into the finished piece. I was planning trees and blowing leaves but changed to chimneys and smoke.
I think these guys are going to look fantastic on my table at Renegade!
My favorite flowers in the back of our house are getting devoured by Winter Moth larvae. The trees are also, but I don’t take that so personally. The tree peony managed a few pathetic blossoms and now, my favorite rose, Abraham Darby, it looking completely mutilated. Bummer.
It has been a long while and I’m back in the mood for tikis. I think I made the last one in January 2008.
I am thinking that I will make the tiki pattern this summer. I’ve tried 3 different faces- I will have to decide which one I like best.
It is fun to be working on wool applique after making all the little fox clothes. Mixing it up keeps it all fun for me.
A view from the top-
And the garden is reaching explosion level! I love poppies-
and the allium-
Both the poppies and the allium have self-seeded into all kinds of wonderful places around the garden. And this is just the beginning of the season!
