tree bark and stitching on felt

Such lovely textures from the weekend! Felt brooch and autumn tree bark from the beautiful campus of Princeton.

I received my beautiful package from the amazingly talented New Zealand artist tiny happy. Such pretty packaging with a gocco botanical print and delicate green string.

She does such beautiful stitching and sewing and I absolutely love to read her blog. And I love her felt and embroidered brooches! She is such a dear to give us this tutorial on how to make them! When I saw this daisy pin I had to have it… while it’s tempting to try to make one myself I prefer to have the original work straight from the artists hands. Plus, I don’t think mine would come out as pretty.

Another inspiration- the most curious frozen fox, entwined in vines, then set in stone on the exterior of the Princeton University Chapel. As many times as I’ve been by this amazing building from the 1920’s, I’ve never noticed him until now!

Thanks to all for your comments on my newest print! We have been so busy doing autumn things…taking walks and traveling all over the place to see the leaves and revel in the fall light. And now it’s cold here so I think I’d like to stay indoors.
