3 – Lulu and the color of love

By spotogspindel | December 3, 2011

Congratulations to Lulu and Rob! Today is their big day! Lulu is one of my dear Arting-friends, and she´s getting married today. Which is why I made this colorful & whimsical gift for her. It´s a freestyle applique and machine embroidery cushin-cover.

Lots of vibrant and bright colors are what remind me of Lulu. The velvet backing fabric is a dark sea-green. The rest is a mix of silk remnants and bamboo rayon yarn.

All the best of luck and happiness for you two wonderful people!

And talking of Lulu, I got this years first Christmas tree ornament from her. Isn´t it just grand?!

It´s actually textile, acrylics on fabric. Such a super idea. But then again, she´s a whiz with doll-making. If you are turning green with envy now, pop over to her Etsy-shop, I think she´s got some extras for sale there 😉


So what hides on the next page in our calendar-book?

“Make a package of things you don´t need anymore, and give it to the Salvation Army”.

It could be any charity of course. The main thing is that not everyone is as fortunate, so maybe we should send more than just a thought, but a real gift. As it is things we don´t really use anymore anyway, it´s a win-win, don´t you think?

My task yesterday was to give five strangers compliments. I saw a lot of people I knew… so I I still have four compliments to go. Good thing she gave me 3 days on each assignment to complete them! 🙂

    I did take a package to the Salvation Army — this should be on MY calendar again soon, as I still have boxes in the basement that should be cleared out! I love Lulu’s gift, and her ornament is adorable!
