Cushion cover.

Posted by Picasa
I have lately been able to work on my cushion cover again. This is a detail of the bold felt flowers on the green duck cloth. I bought beautiful yarn on Etsy that I machine stitched on the surface cloth first. I then drew flowers and cut them out of felt which I then either free-stitched by machine or by hand using silver thread or embroidery silk. I should be able to finish this project soon. After my long creative drought this was one of the first things I started.

A platespinner for sure, I never work on a single project at a time. I have sketches ready for a family from Swaziland and this is the youngest son. I will post more as I finish elements. Although I look forward to coloring this (7 cm) sketch, I am also a little hesitant because I haven't done anything like this for such a long time.

Missing Jasper.

My nephew Jasper from Holland spent part of the summer with me in the Southwest. Seems really quiet without him around and the house much too tidy.

Paper Cut.

My first paper cut. I made a drawing of an Acacia tree, then traced it and placed the tracing paper over dark brown Mulberry paper so that I didn't have any pencil marks on the final cut.
