Look what the mailman brought me!!


Carlene was so generous. Now I have all the vintage wool I could possibly want. The question is what to make?

I've been very inspired by some of the unique pillows I've see out there. Geninne's pillows here and here are great. What about something like the ecstasy pillows for sale here? Or maybe something completely different... Like the pillows at matthew izzo. I even have a picture in mind.
I recently fell in love with this pitbull's photo at a California rescue group. I ran the photo through dumpr's sketch maker and now it looks like this. Can't you just see the outline embroidered for a one-of-a-kind pillow?
But really... I think I'm going to do some rendition of Gustav Klimt's beautiful Tree of Life. Check back to see the progress.

Yes! I can see some of the elements of the Tree of Life, and/or some from the Ecstasy pillow...swirly little motifs. Maybe not so little. Ooh, I can't wait!

Pretty colors! I understand why you bragged on Carlene's generosity.

WELL? Have you finished the pillow yet?

It's going to have to wait until after I get back from Art & Soul. Be assured you'll see it here first. ;-)
