It's Simply Neutrals Tuesday # 11. It's about time I created something! Here is a wall hanging I made for my mum's birthday last week. You can see Suzy's influence here, but I have always loved these muted colours and 'beautiful ladies'.
I had to get some images printed at a printer as mine had died. I am waiting for my new printer to come by mail soon. I much prefer having control over the images. This one was printed on a canvas, which is a lovely texture, but a little shiny up close. I found the fringe on a roll at Vinnies last week, too. It's always fun going in to see what treasure may be discarded by someone else!
Here's a closeup. The berries at the top were a Vinnies find, too - an old Christmas wreath decoration which I spray-painted white. There's a tiny scrap of wedding dress pearls in the corner.
Here is a bear I made from an old fur coat from an op shop. It was a leather base, so sadly it must have been a young goat or something similar. The hair is so soft. It was very fine and brittle and hard to sew without tearing.
A closeup of Henrietta with one of my quilts behind.
Here's a couple of quilt blocks from that quilt -not really neutral, but all together the quilt reads as neutral on the wall :)
Here's the quilt on the wall:
I took this photo years ago with my Olympus OM2-N SLR (not a digital camera).
Gypsy our cheeky cat loves sleeping in cosy places... the doll pram.
A bunch of my Spring roses for you all.

Oh, and some lovely news - our band Ballyhooley has been selected to take part in the 50th Anniversary national Folk Music Festival in Canberra at Easter. I posted some old photos on my facebook page if you are interested:
