MORE PILLOWS AND SPRING STUFF

I'm still having fun playing with some more silk screen stencils that I made. These will go to Kane and the shop and I'm working on more for my Etsy Shop.



I decided to experiment with wet felting and lace for pillows. Not only are they sweet but they are very strong!


CLOSE UP!










Oh, and i made more felted nests (as long as I had the wool out). This time with felted blue eggs and attached to some branches!












CAN YOU GUESS WHAT INFLUENCED ME TO MAKE THESE EGGS? IF YOU GUESS CORRECTLY, AND LET ME KNOW, YOU WILL GET YOUR NAME IN THE BASKET 2 MORE TIMES!

I found myself looking for the return of Robins this morning and I only had to look at your blog to find their nest and blue egg.
Imagine that!

Love the felted lace too. :o)

Mermaid Queen said...

I love everything you make! I'd say you're influenced by a robin's egg. Take care, Martha

June said...

Oh Judy how can you keep coming up with the most beautiful things!!!!
To say that the pillows are beautiful, is not enough, to say they are gorgeous, doesn't even come close. I sometimes think my comments don't covey what I really feel about you art. I just hope you know how much you inspire me.
Is Easter your inspiration for the eggs?
Hugs to you!

I really, really like those eggs that you created, they are so unique. I'd say you're being influenced by the promise of Spring!
I'll be following you to see what other beautiful creations you have! Lisa :-)

You make everything beautifully. I wish I had just a tad bit of your creativity. The eggs are darling. Naturally I want to say that Easter and Spring influenced your eggs. But for some reason I am inclined to say that it is the "Alice in Wonderland" movie and hype that may have influenced you.

Your eggs look like some I recently made, but haven't done anything with yet...hmmmmmm...where to put them? Are some felted somehow? Influenced by the coming warmth of spring?

LOVE it all! I know - I'm always saying how much I love your artwork&styling, but I really, really LOVE everything you create!!!
OK - what influenced you to make these eggs? I'm thinking it is the Nordic-style Easter eggs I see on so many of their lovely blogs. Fabulous!!!
Hugs,
Zuzu

Mary Ellen said...

It must be spring and Easter time to get those eggs looking so darling!! I am loving this idea too! I joined an easter basket swap and might have to borrow this idea if that is ok!

My I wish I had you talent- I have been so inspired this morning by browsing you blog. Now I have to go get unpacked from Baby watching and repacked as we have to travel NM for a funeral- I do so wish I had time to sit and do some of this wonderful things- you make me think that I can after seeing all you do!

spring is coming albeit very slowly - the nests are so gorgeous and although they must be the eggs of a thrush or something i keep blue egg laying chickens!!

Your little nest, eggs, pillows are so sweet! Thanks for stopping by my blog too

Dumpster Decorators said...

Hello Yes, it's the nest on the branch with the powder blue felt egg center that's in this blog post that I am referring to. It is so sweet. If you would like to do one of those custom listings on ETSY or advise a way you would prefer I would love to purchase it. I'm eyeing up some of the pillows on your blog too!

Your felted blue eggs are delightful! How precious! Sweet, delicate, full of promise, soft!
