Studio Friday: Toot Your Own Horn

" Studio Friday, for me, is a network of Artist from all over the world. It's a fabulous way to communicate with and learn from artists of all backgrounds. With this being said, I would love to see a showcase of what YOUR art is. Are you a scrapbooker? A clay artist? Are you a collage artist or a photographer? Do you paint or work in the fibre arts of Knitting, sewing or enbroidery? Are you a gardener a botanist or an eclectic artist of many trades? I'd love to see a piece that you have created that you are most proud of. SHOW off your STUFF!!"

I'm kind of a quiet person and shouting out loud isn't my style. So, I'll let the work speak for itself. Past pillow projects—some embroidered, some patchwork, some a combination of the two. I couldn't pick just one :)

Flower Power. I just keep looking at it. The red poppies take it up, the blue cools it back down (but not too far) and the red polka-dot piping balances it all...perfectly. Flawless mixture. Thanks for posting it.

you're allowed/suposed to toot for gods sake! ;-) just be proud!

I really like all your designs!

Kate said...

Wow! I love the pillow made using a table runner of Southern Belle. Can you please let me know if the pattern/transfer for this beautiful belle is available? Thanks and God bless!

Kate, I bought this runner already completed. I imagine there is a pattern somewhere but I don't know the best way to find it. There are a lot of original transfers sold on Ebay - it may take some digging and patience to find a copy. Patternbee has one that is very similar, perhaps close enough for your purposes. You'll find it here:

Thanks Janet,
Thank you so much for the information and pointing me to the patternbee website! I found many other Vogart patterns I was looking for, at patternbee.com. I love your blogs, God bless!
