WORKING WITH COLORS - AGAIN :-)




I love colors, like (almost) everyone. And I very much enjoy repetition in artwork, especially in fiber art. And I love to combine those two things, with a lot of texture added, in simple craft projects. So last week it was pillow time. I still have so many small fabric scraps and remnants, I was really not short of material! The joy of working with those little colorful pieces was worth the hard labor of appliqueing with a small satin stitch hundreds of leaves, squares, circles and hearts.


They have zippers on the back and a 20" x 20" white pillow case from the blue/yellow Swede inside.



The last two display a graphic expression of autumn, actually it looks more like spring in autumn! I love those most! :-)

All fabrics are good quality cotton. The beige background of the leave pillows is linen. I will open again a little holiday shop at the end of the week and I am going to put them in there.

Zoom in to see how pretty they are...

Liebe Yael,

ich kann nur wieder sagen: Hut ab! Deine Kissen sehen so fantastisch aus und ich bin wieder einmal restlos begeistert. Du hast wirklich eine besondere Gabe, die verschiedensten Stoffe zu einem wunderschönen Ganzen zusammenzusetzen.

Liebe Grüße
Jutta

Brilliant, all of them are so bright and colourful, thanks Yael. Oh, I meant Marvin Gaye who was a great man, shot by his own father, terrible thing. And, Marvin was at his highest point, he was a great musician.

Bin hin und weg und ganz verliebt in deine wunderbaren Kissen.
Habe heute auch ein bisschen genäht... kann das Teilchen aber nur bei Candellight und mit einem die Blicke voll in den Bann ziehenden Foulard anziehen.... wenn frau genau hinschauen wûrde, würden sich ihr alle Haare aufstellen!! Ob es wohl an der Nähmaschine
liegt ; )?
Wünsche auch dir ein bezaubernde Woche und grüsse dich ganz ♥-lich Brigitte
