It’s so hard to get decent pictures this time of year! It’s even harder when taking pictures of something white. This is the best I could do.
In addition to printing my “Winter Wash” design on tea towels, I also want to make it available roughly centered left to right on the lower two thirds of a 20″ high by 26″ wide panel. It’s a generous enough size to be used in a number of ways. I’d love to use it as an apron over a little girl’s velveteen skirt. It would also make a fantastic adult apron. And of course, there is the pillow cover option. Here I cut a panel to 18″ x 18″ in order to make a pillow cover.
I wanted to embellish the pillow cover without adding any color. I quilted using my free motion presser foot and made and uneven foreground, a bark look to the trees, the texture of hair on the girl, and swirls from the sky for falling snow. Then I embroidered some snowflakes in white. They were just done improvisationally which means that no two are alike but the symmetry might be off! I added clear glass beads here and there for sparkles in the snow. I love the simplicity of it.
The back is the scarf print from the Sherbet Pips line.
I showed the pillow to my husband and he asked who it was for. I told him that I didn’t know yet and he said that we should keep it. I took that as quite a compliment. He also said that as he looked at it, he kept noticing new surprises. Not bad from a husband huh?
I am willing to take special orders for these panels at the moment but will have some for general sale in the shop within the week. I just have a few commitments to get to first!
