Hello everyone! I hope you are and not feeling as cold as we are! It’s about +3 degrees and if it’s not raining it’s hailing! So what can we do … stay inside and sew and crochet! I happened to make flowers – with fabric and with yarn!
This is my latest work with scraps from my fabric stash. I tried not to have any orange this time … but I guess that’s not possible for me!
My first idea when starting this, was to make it circle and frame it like the ‘Sunshine’ circle. But during the work I realized that this didn’t like to stay around and the size for that frame so I changed my plan.
I wanted to make a frame with dark blue fabric to add some stronger colour and then I attached my ‘fabric painting’ to a painting canvas with wooden frame.
And here you are … my fabric painting. Maybe I start to miss painting because lately pictures are so often in my mind! If you like to see how I made a scrap flower for a notebook, click HERE.
I am linking with my friend Kati at ‘From the Blue Chair’! She has a wonderful link party engouraging us to use our fabric stash! And she makes fantastic quilts with amazing colours!Also I am linking with my friends Megan and Heather’s ‘Fabric Tuesday’ at ‘Quilt Story’!
The light is absolutely not enough to take photos, because our weather is really really cold and rainy. Today it was even hailing a little bit.
I do hope we get some sunlight soon, so that I can have decent photos for my shop.
Just for a while it was not raining and I asked nicely if Nero would like to be a model. I’m happy he agreed to wear this girlish flower scarf …
Fortunately I found a little bit purple yarn which is the same as this green. With the purple yarn I fixed my old knitted jacket if you remember – some grannies and crochet lines to the sleeves. I love these colours!
I would like to tell you that my friend Kelly from ‘The Blue Bird Sews’, is having a great link party! The subject is our online shops – talking about everything about selling our crafts, where, how, inspirations etc. etc.
And because after a while I have some knitting and crochetin here, I’m happy to link with Andrea, Linda and Beth!
With this bucket of flowers and leaves I leave you to dream about spring! I hope you have something beautiful and warm to cheer you up during these cold days! Thank You again for your wonderful comments! It’s always enjoy to read them!
Your newest framed quilting is beautiful Teje. The circular one I bought from your shop is hanging in my Studio and looks wonderful. Your scarf is super, the flowers are a perfect finishing touch. I think we are all having bad weather…it’s been only +2oc here today and a very heavy frost is due overnight….brrrrrrrrrr! Enjoy your crafting,
Those purpley flowers were just the perfect touch to your scarf–and what a regal and handsome model. My little Arthur would be tearing around the house like a whirling dervish, the scarf wafting after him with his partners in crime in hot pursuit. Stay warm and do your magic inside.
The scarf was already lovely, but the flowers make it very special, Nero looks very well suited to hail weather! I love the fabric flower, it reminds me of of something, some kind of cactus? But lovely!
How adorable Nero looks in your beautiful new scarf! I love the crochet flowers very much, they make it look really special and the colours all look lovely together. The scrap flowers are amazing, so exotic…it’s incredible what you can create with little bits of fabric!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Teje.
