In an effort to continue creating new things for the Christmas open house, I made some winter flowers. They're meant to be hung as ornaments on the Christmas tree, but here they're festooning Ethyl's new companion. (I haven't named her yet.)
I made them from hand knitted flowers, felted flowers (from the recycled sweaters), odd bits of fabric, lace, vintage doilies and vintage buttons. I decided to keep the color palette whites, creams and silvers, wanting them to look like snowflakes once they're on a tree with lights and tinsel.
The assembling and hand sewing are a bit time intensive, so there are only about 20 or so. I may do another batch later, but this is what I got done yesterday.
I have a few more ideas still floating in my noggin to keep me busy for a while. So, as new things come to life, I'll keep sharing them with you.
By the way, thank you so much for your kind words, encouragement and feedback. It's a blessing to receive input from such admirable artists. I treasure each and every comment you leave.
blessings and happiness,
