Work'in on it Wednesday and a new BFF!

Hi there! How's your week going? It's been really busy here at Bunnyville.

This is a new Folk Art Fusion piece I'm working on, "Peter and Peter are Pumpkin Eaters."
I'm working on stitching the wool felt now. I have a fun idea for the border on this. It's a pretty big piece. I think the finished size will be around 22" x 42".

Many of you have expressed interest in my Folk Art Fusion so I've decided I to write a book on it. It's just to much info to put into a pattern. What do you think? I also plan to hold more workshops and give lectures on the technique. It's just so much fun to do and I want to teach everyone to do it!

My wool obsession continues with all the new Folk Art Fusion pieces I have spinning in my head. This weeks BFF (bundle of fun felts) is great for making some folky Christmas projects!

I also have some Pairings available with Valdani 3 Strand Floss.

You can find the BFF's and Pairings in my Shop. So what have you been work'in on?

xx,

Love the Peter and Peter! The book sounds like a good idea!

Karen M said...

The book sounds like a terrific idea. And rabbit people would need to buy two copies each, one to read, one to eat! This is very exciting, shell.

Happy wednesday!

Wow, that applique looks like a paper cutting! These fabric colors are vibrant and lush, I love them with the twist!

A new Peters?! Peter and Peter 2.0?! Oooooooooooooh, I'm loving it already!

Love the BFF/pairing colors as well--it reminds me of the transition from the greens of spring and summer to the red and gold of fall and then the white of the winter months. So pretty to see, but a wee bit depressing to think about (if you know what I mean).

Please count me among the first to want one of your new books! I've been wanting to learn your technique for quite some time now, so I'll definitely get one when you get it published!
Love your new piece. It's beautiful.
Hugs to you and the bunnies.

Love the pumpkin eaters. A book sounds like an amazing idea, it will of course have to feature your two employees.
Hugs to you and the beautiful bunnies.

I just love your new Autumn piece! It is wonderful. Your going to write a book! That is great news. I must tell you, I have wanted to do a wool felt project for a long time. In fact, a few years ago I bought some lovely wool felt for a project and I haven't had the guts to do anything with it. I pull it out every few months and look at it, and it goes back in the plastic box. I just don't know how to get on with it, and the instructions I have read so far don't make me feel confident at all.
So--I will be very interested in your book! I know a book is a long term project, but my box of wool felt isn't going anywhere!

The book is a great idea...but I also think patterns featuring BFF because I love seeing the pairings but my imagination isn't much. I have to know how to use them!

Your fall pieces always make me love fall :) And this folk art fusion one especially! And I love the color scheme of the felt! I live in fall colors!!!
