Over this hideously cold winter I have been spending a lot of time in the house trying to stay warm and going through art and crafting supplies looking for inspiration. I had a lovely collection of vintage suit ties and hand dyed fabric bits just crying out to be assembled into something and here is the result.
The second one incorporates pieces of cotton shirts purchased at thrift stores and cotton ticking salvaged from two 70 year old mattress. I can tell you that was a heck of a job cutting the fabric from the mattress!
I am quite enamored with "found" objects and salvaged items and this year I an planning in dabbling with what is termed "Outsider Art". Stay tuned for some interesting posts this year..:)
I hope you are finding interesting ways to while away this freezing weather and if we all wish hard enough maybe, just maybe we will have an early Spring!
Happy Tuesday to all....
