This beautiful, colourful cloth was made for me by the gorgeous Hoola Tallulah .... this cloth is as bright and effervescent as her blog and her life. Such a beautiful online friend of quite a few years now. Love the vivid fabric weaving and all of the hand stitching...such a ray of sunshine in winter in Australia.
And another unexpected fabric gift...a beautiful, soft, buttery cloth from my friend Dot. A different colour palette than I use myself, but ohhh so beautiful. It is to be a collaborative cloth...she has stitched the cloth a little and I will now add my *touches*. Lovely soft fabrics (it is so beatiful in your hand) and I loved the stitched creature/bird...very quirky and very Dot!
Deanna has dyed these using tin cans and a variety of leaves on silks...looove these! They will be put to good use in my Cloth I am working on for Magic Diaries with Jude Hill.
The little pouch is handmade and has some of the lovely bobbin lace that Deanna makes.
So, as you can see, I am flush with beautiful fabric gifts from my friends recently .... I feel very lucky.
Lee this week. Lee chose the wool (a beautiful Merino, Angora, Silk blend) when we went over to Healesville recently to see the Arichibald Prize Winners. I have added a little boro touch as Lee is really into indigo at the moment and all things boro.
