LITTLE HEART FOR SIMPLY NEUTRALS # 26


 I TRIED MY HAND ON EMBROIDERY AGAIN!!!
and created this little heart, first using the hammering
method of laying a flower between two pieces of nature
fibers, like cotton, or silk, and then using a hammer to add the
juices of the flower and stem, to the fabric.



This was a tiny white flowered wild flower, and as you see it 
resulted in rusty and brownish tones.
I enjoyed embroidering the flowers with neutral tones cotton 
threads , and adding a seambinding to hang it !!


This weeks neutrals also includes my most beautiful 
Madame Alfred Carriere  rose.


It is growing on the wall to my former shop, and have reached the roof this year,
So filled with beautiful fragrant roses .


This flower from a tulip tree, I pass when walking my afternoon tour,
was so pretty even it already started to decay !! 


This ,I know, is the last Simply Neutrals over at Wen`s , for the coming 
month, as our dear friend are to have summer holly day 
so I will thank her for now, for all the wonderful and lovely
parties we had so far .
Thank`s dear Wen.

I myself and my husband, have just sold our house and beautiful
beach area, and the coming month will be filled with
packing and moving to a new destination .
Please know that I might not be so much on blogs, and fb,
dear friends, but I will check on you and  be back again.

Love and hugs, Dorthe

A gift in neutral tones .

Another wonderful party together with dear Wendy :



This hanger I recently created for a very dear friend, to her birthday.

I used a bingo card as foundation, and added old laces, buttons, and the beautiful old image of
a young girl , and yes I used the original photo :-)


The piece of wood on top is an old decoration piece from years ago,
where they were often sitting on wardrobes , 


Old handmade piece of lace and old buttons !


A wooden heart treated with paint and crackle paste.
I enjoyed creating with fabric and laces again, 


Another old ,I believe ,lace tool ?


The lilacs are almost finished blooming, so these are from last
week, when I treated myself, with a beautiful bouquet of white ones.


Thank you for every visit, and every comment, I treasure both
so very much, and wishes you all a wonderful week.

Hugs and love
Dorthe
