:: Circle Wall Hanging

All finished and ready for the shop......yes you say with a sigh! 
I know I have being saying this for ages but soon :)

 I have used a super soft twine, that is very tactile and appealing to touch and I think it compliments the linen fabric of the embroidery very nicely!

Felt balls, I love these and would hang the every where if I had the chance.

  A bit of styling for effect, winter sun was very elusive this morning, now it's out....... but the camera battery is dead so it will have to do.

 A bit of taunting for Tania.....
the next wall hanging to be macramed up!
I hope you like the coastal effect? :)

I had to show you the boy's recent drawings, the smiling centipede family! 
Literally just four days ago they were just represented with lines, you can see a line drawing in green but now they have faces, hair and shoes!

Children are amazing little sponges, I think he learnt this at kinder because it wasn't done here at home with us.
In years to come, he might take over the family business!

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. So, so beautiful...and I love the felt balls too.

  2. Oh...and I forgot to say how wonderful I think your son's centipede family is. They look very happy indeed, and their shoes are lovely. :) Grandson #1 graduated from scribbling to drawing a real circle today. I was drawing stove burners on their Magic Table so they could pretend to cook, and he copied the circles I was drawing, right down to the size. I was proud.

  3. Ohhhhh Dana what a special moment!
    I'm so pleased you were there for that, I bet he was pleased with himself!

  4. Well Pippa, they do say the apple never falls very far from the tree!

    As for Epithany, it's a beautiful piece, I really do like it. It looks stunning, sunshine or not.

    I think you are very clever coming up with these awesome new ideas all the time.

    Looking forward to some retail therapy when ouchflower (finally) opens its doors x

    p.s. you might have to bribe #1 son to help you out when it opens...think they're gonna sell fast.

  5. A very clever wall hanging Pippa, lovely colours and little one's artwork is so cute,(ha hair,shoes).My youngest went through a jellyfish stage.

  6. So beautiful ... can't wait to see more ... I love felt ball garlands too ... I made some for last Christmas but they are just too pretty to take down ... love the centipedes .. what happy little faces ... Bee x

  7. You are super talented......
