More wool works


I've finally been brave enough to cut up some of my wool stash.
I find it so hard as I love opening my (small) wool cupboard and just admiring!

But having been inspired by photos of dragonflies and butterflies and summery flowers, I decided to make some pillows in my favourite colour, blue, of course!

Just simple straightforward designs I drew out and then stitched onto neutral wool background.

  I added a few knots for detail


I think the dragonfly is my favourite.


Time to fly!

Hope you like as I'm listing them in Etsy.

Many thanks for commenting!

  17. Dear, Darling Christine,
    I'm so overjoyed by finding my self here again !

    After this period of 'interlude' which I had to allow myself due to work reasons - the Short Lets I manage here at Tenuta Geremia, the speech about the Empress of Austria I had to prepare and to perform at the conference which was held last Saturday at Madonna di Campiglio, in our Dolomiti, some works of restoration here and the family to join and follow took me far from the pc for more than a month and a half - I'm so glad to enjoy your artistry again, I've been missing you so ,so much, sweetie !

    Hope you're enjoing your day, I'm sending my dearest love to you, with utmost gratitude for the works of art you always share

    Xx Dany

  18. Gorgeous cushions, Christine. Each one of them are a picture of woolly loveliness. The dragon fly is so sweet; I think it is my favourite too, though the flower comes a close second.

  20. I know what you mean, I have a drawer of Batiks that I bought that I just can't bring myself to cut up, I just sit back and admire :) These are so pretty, I do like the dragonfly the best too but your flower is a very close second :) Beautiful work!

  21. These are adorable! I can understand your reluctance to cutting up your wool stash, wool is not that easy to come by. You have taken your stash and created some wonderful warm and cozy treasures. You're such a talented girl.
    Happy weekend!
    Connie :)
