Being Patient and gentle with myself is key!

A Landscape of houses on a sunshine day!
Good Morning! It's Monday, it's raining and breezing out here.
I been waiting for this day. We need rain and I think is finally here to pour for two more days. I really hope so cause we need it. What have I been doing lately...well, I been painting with felt without paint of course and this is some thing completely new to me but I can tell you it's a lot of fun needle hand felting on flat felt. I simply love the technique. I know I have not posted paintings lately but I been doodling some ideas down on paper. I'm relaxing my mind and going with the flow. I want to come back with paintings with a whole fresh perspective. Right now I'm painting with felt using vibrant colors. The piece reminds of houses in someway on a sunny day.  The piece itself measures about  8.5" x 7.5" stitched on canvas and Rossini watercolor paper. I love abstract. Some people don't understand abstract for it's unclear message they say. Abstract to me is a beautiful combination of form  and shape where color compliments each other, finally transforming into poetry. A sensitivity of composition and colors. 

The road to a place I never been
This is a much smaller piece and it was my first I created. And it done in felt stitched on canvas and  Rossini watercolor paper 3.5" x 5". So organic and easily to work with. It is also therapeutic I just can't stop!  I'm learning the simpleness of needle felting. I have bought books on felting at this place in Great Barrington in Mass, not too far from here. It does take me about 45 minutes and love the drive there. It's a cool place for craft goodies. As for me I'm doing fine, just getting over a depression slowly. I have been sad lately but I keep reminding myself of all the things I love and stay focus on that. I'm trying to have a baby now and not falling pregnant yet makes me impatient and gloomy. I'm new to this and so I feel a bit anxious and I can't have this anxiety overwhelm me nonono I can't. So I must breath and not think about it. Life seems to be moving so slow but hey I understand that life does not work that way. So I need to be gentle with myself. And know the time will come to motherhood. I will keep my hands in paint and follow my heart to this beautiful journey patiently with love!

Land patches to wear in the fall!

My Itsy Bitsy Fiber Bracelet cuffs!
Lately My computer has not been working properly and wasn't able to list my goodies on Etsy. But now with George's touch and brilliance at computers, he was able to fix it. And so here I am yet again with lovely things to show you. Again I have not been painting due to artist's block. I decided while I take a break from painting   and I will use my creativity in other ways. I love sewing and love working with colorful fabric and felt. The other day I went to a yarn shop in Millerton NY called Twisted love the name. I went in and bought wool yarn and some really cool buttons. Here is a photo of what I been creating lately with wool fabric, felt , decorative fabric and buttons. I love abstract! These bracelets remind me of road maps, land patches of colorful fields. And you can wear these colorful  landscape fiber bracelets beautifully around your wrist. These are so earthy reminding me of fall my favorite season. I will be back soon very soon with some paintings. But for now I will show you more goodie stuff I been enjoying and I'm very inspired and excited.

This is a very unusual piece of work. It is called the itsy bitsy flip clutch made out of 100% wool fabric, pieces of decorative fabric and felt. I was inspired by a friend of mine named Hagar Arnon Elbaz earrings I have purchased, a new comer to bloggy land. I would love for you all to welcome her. She is awesome! You can also find her on Etsy, her shop is called Gilgulim. Her Blog is http://hagarae.blogspot.com/ Take a look! She is wonderful, I love her work!

This clutch is beautiful for it's simplicity!

The itsy bitsy clutches!

The Itsy Bitsy Clutches!

Wondering where I've been for the past 7days...well I been home creating like a mad woman. I have not been painting but I have blissfully creating colorful clutches in wool, fleece, felt and needle felting. And I'm having loads of fun fun! Turning my clutches into my whimsical characters. Love the quirkiness about them! 

As you all know I love exploring learning inventing new things. I'm in love with color! Love combining beautiful colors together and each color compliments each other so wonderfully. I fall in love with each clutch I make. I can't stop. A friend of mine who owns a yarn store in Kent CT told me about a fabric store in Brookfield and said I must go. It is called Joann Fabric store and they have tons tons of whimsical fabric and felt. It was like a candy store for me. I went nuts. I was inspired!!! I also found another great store who sells handmade 100% hand dyed felted wool bundle on Etsy called Quiltingacres by Errin. Love love her wool and I highly recommend her shop to those who love to work with felted wool. 

I will show you more photos of my clutches!

The back of the clutch I added a pocket with a felted heart!

Now this clutch is a bit different! 

This clutch was my first and I simply love it! It was a challenging and fun project. I gathered all my pieces of fabric and stitched them all, creating the pieces like an abstract painting and finally into a clutch. It is just lovely!!! I will have more info and detail about the pieces on my Etsy shop tomorrow!
