Old to New

I pulled out my trusty wool sweater bag for my newest project. I probably look a little crazy considering it has been in the 80's everyday for the last week but I can't help myself. It holds everything in a nice neat package for an on the go project.

I am working on a little something for someone - a little vague but I don't want the secret out yet. I am working with my pile of vintage fabrics and linen that has come from clothes that I have worn out. Everything has been washed so many times it has a great soft feel to it.

The overall motif is feathers. Along with rocks, feathers are another object I tend to pick up and philosophise about. Changing gears from sewing wool to embroidering linen, has been a nice way to rest my wrists. Plus, embroidery lends it self to fine details in a different way than rolling up wool.



My inspiration for the feathers has come from here. Her talent is amazing.
