Nature pincussion , and beach finds

Although I am sewing angels for my own shop, I just had to make this little pincussion
today, in the mittle of all the angel creating.

I loved to ecco the branches on the beautifull image (I will try to find out,from where I got it)
with some real branches.It looks beautifull together with all the white.
__________It will be in my Etsy___________

On one of my beach tours, I found those small driftwood pieces
(the black one is from a tire)

And turned one of them into a holder for some stamped cotton ribbons,
that are now on it`s way to a sweet blogging friend.

I so hope you all have a wonderfull week-end
it has turned cold and very stormy here, but I have seen the sun,too .

Many dear thoughts to you all,with
hugs and love.

The pincushion is lovely Dorthe! The driftwood is even more beautiful though and what a lovely idea to wrap the ribbon around it. I collect driftwood from everywhere I go and I have bags of it. I love this idea!

...your nature whimsies are always lovely! I admire the starkness of the white combined with bits of lace and the twigs.

Lovely pincushion pillow and just the right touch of nature with the photo. Your stamped ribbon is very intriguing and interesting wrapped around the driftwood. Happy creating...

What a lovely idea to use real twigs to go with the twigs in the sweet little image! The pincushion is exquisite, really beautiful.

Wow Dorthe is is a dream.
So wonderful pillow. Awesome. I love it.

I love the idea of you using nature's art to add to your own--what wonderful inspiration!!

Dorthe, the pincushion is so sweet and so is the little vintage image. It's probably even older than vintage. It looks very much from the 1800s, which would make it an antique for sure.
And the driftwood're so lucky to be near the sea so you are able to find these treasures!

Hi Dorthe,

What a sweet little pincushion and I love how you have incorporated the little twigs into your work.
The drift wood is lovely.

Have a happy week

Charlene said...

I LOVE your pin cushion. The image on it is so sweet. I made 25 pin cushions once for a swap for an Art Event I went to. When you make that many all at once it is not as much fun. Beautiful job. Thank you for sharing it. Charlene
