It does not match the couch, but it makes a statement. Same as first one... a little feminine Victoria era craft with masculine fabric, add a little crazy quilt, to reflect the year we are having. Sometimes that is the only phrase that will get the point across.
Next ... I still have old denim pieces left, I see another project on the horizon. Its a great way to reuse and recycle old fabric.
Take a traditional Victorian era, feminine craft like embroidery, and use a masculine working class fabric like denim, and get creative. A little embroidery, a little recycled fabric and stuffing, a little sewing, and we have a pillow. This maybe a very offensive word for some people. But I think... sometimes it's the only word that really says what you want to say! Enjoyed doing this one, so I am working on another one. It does take a long time to do all that embroidery, but its satisfying, mindless evening pass-time, while its dark and cold outside this time of year. Only downfall, Buddy the golden retriever seems to think its for him and wants to play with it. He has a habit of destroying stuffed things he plays with. Put it where he will not get it!
Recently read Let the Elephants Run by David Usher.Its about "reigniting and nurturing creativity in accessible and productive ways". These ideas and concepts are not new to me, but the book was a good reminder, to change it up and do different creative projects. So, my first project was seasonal patio pots. One for the front door and one for the back door. Birch sticks from a friend, greenery from the garden and a little snow. Total cost was $0, and it really did not take very long to put together. And it was fun to do! Next project ...
