These Are a Few of My Favorite Things...

I'm heading downtown soon to deliver my five packages to the Bessborough Hotel.  They are all wrapped up and tied with bows.  And the paperwork is done.  There was LOTS of paperwork.

LOVE the grey ribbon.

I love fibre art.  You know that.


Did you know I also heart snow globes?


But what I really like is fibre art IN snowglobes!!


Can you dig it?  It's my "very merry prairie".  tee hee.


I had to.  Michelle Flowers (artist mama friend) and I talked about finding the frame and then creating the art.  It makes it so much easier.  So I found the snowglobe.  And the art is from yesterday's photo stunt outside of the city.  (Pretty good hey Michelle?)  : )  I need to make more.

What do you think?  The little winter landscape is 2" x 3.7/8".  It's VERY small.  It's made of felt, dyed cheese cloth, rayon threads, cotton variegated threads, sheer ribbon, yarns, and a recycled dryer sheet.  I bet you didn't know there was that much in it!?  Oh yeah... and one snow globe.

happy Friday!

My Sweet Prairie said...

Awe thanks!

That first fibre art piece is a 2x2" close up of a prairie scene I did that was 18x12". LOTS of work. I sold it at my most recent exhibit.
Teach - I did a post card class once. That's it. I'm self taught, so I don't know fi I could teach. I have no role models that way. ?
