Today, on day 6 of the Art Every Day challenge, I finished up this little lady carrying fresh picked apples from the orchard! I'm thinking she looks like a Mary Jane - what do you think?
She is cut from commercial fabrics fused onto muslin and appliqued with a machine satin stitch.
The muslin background was then painted with fabric paints and the details sketched in with a machine straight stitch. I then went back and added a bit more shading with colored pencils.
I also wanted to show some beautiful handmade gifts (the best kind, I think) given to me as a belated birthday gift by my friend Karen.
The pillow is filled with lavender and smells heavenly!
The towel to the right is neatly trimmed with lovely birch tree fabric.
And the pretty bag in front is filled with balsam needles from the trees on Karen's property in Vermont!
Am I a fortunate lady or what!!
Thank you so much, Karen!
