Some petit Woolen Embroidery...

I have been busy the last week embroidering for several coffee cozies that I am making. One of my New Year's Resolutions was to sell some of my art...

One might wonder what coffee cozies have to do with art?


Well, I find the coffee cozy a perfect sized pallet for experimenting with embroidery, wool, and beads. This also goes for color too - as I pick out wool color, thread and bead color, and what kind of cotton I'm going to use to line the cozy with...


The best part about making coffee cozies is that each one is a pint sized, portable, unique piece of art...


As the new year is well on it's way (being that January is almost half over!) What kind of pallet do you like to work on? I prefer smaller scaled things, sometimes looking at something blank and big scares me. Maybe that should be another resolution; make at least one piece of big art?

Once again beautiful work.
Be sure to post those pics on cloth, paper, scissors.
January has found me obsessively stamping images on ragged and wrinkled muslin pieces, and then applique-ing them on bigger pieces of pretty fabric.
Keep up the good work,

Cheers,
