Pillow Talk!

Worked on pillows last fall that mixed up printed and painted cottons with commercial  fabrics. Also mixed free motion machine work with hand embroidery. My favorite combo.

At some point I went through the studio and found projects that were half finished and whipped them into shape. The piece below started as a self portrait on paper, was then printed onto fabric and combined with scraps to make the front of the pillow.

The Yellow pillow had also been hanging on the felt wall for some time, so onto the work table she went, and she too became a pillow top!

This little lovely is that inner peacenik that can't quite understand the insanity!

And "in progress" is Miss Thimble Head...the thimble came from a Rebecca Ringquist scrap bundle! This girl is VERY happy to have that hat!!!

Getting last minute details done for our workshop this weekend. Thirteen lucky creative women heading this way! Also packing for Florida...heading out to hang with the sisters next week!!
