Watercolor Art Fabric Pincushions Pumpkin Style

I've been busy making pincushons for our local art fair the first weekend in December. I used my Pumpkins and Asters fabric for part of this one with a blue batik fabric and blue floss.

In this one I used my Orange Rosebuds fabric, the blue batik and blue floss. I made this design during my Illustrator class earlier in the year. I haven't done much on Illustrator since then, I like drawing by hand so much better.

I used my Coreopsis and Ladybugs fabric for this one. I really like how this fabric turned out. It really says autumn to me. I used a reddish toned commercial fabric and red floss.

This one turned out nicely with a unique color combination. I used my Daisy Diamond fabric paired with a grey batik and black floss. Seems elegant to me.

A little tea time inspired pincushion using my Teapots on Blue fabric paired with a lavender plaid and lavender floss with a big striped button. These were a lot of fun to make.

Gourd Drawing and Purple Lupine Thank You Card

I found some really neat gourds at our local farmer's market this year. Lots of bumps and lumps and interesting protrusions here and there. Very challenging drawing. I want to try and paint one next and see how that goes. Trying to get the shadows and create depth will be challenging.

I have a new series of cards using some purple lupine wildflowers I painted earlier in the year. I liked the lavender shades.
