I have been meaning to show you this for a while. A few weeks ago we had a little get together where we decided to follow our own devices, can't remember now but I think we all started with a piece of calico. Unfortunately I can't show you what the others did but this is my piece. The figure is painted onto calico and appliqued and the background is hand needle felt.
My piece was inspired by a painting by Rima of The Hermitage.
Because I was actually working from the picture I asked Rima if she would mind me using it, she generously gave permission. This is the delightful piece that inspired mine and I bought a copy of it and a picture for a present for a friend from her etsy shop.
It is called "Soup and Pipe"
I have no affiliation other than that I love her work and the tales of her fascinating lifestyle, if you have never visited with her do take a peek.
