Hope you have all had a creative week. I thought I would show you one of my fabrics called, imaginatively, Mexican Hearts, which was inspired by, well, mexican hearts. One of my many obsessions is with mexican tin art.
I love everything about it...the colours, the designs, and the folky look of it.
I also love the whole Day of the Dead clebration they have on the 5th May (soon) and all the artwork that depicts skeletons and creepy stuff. It is great to be so festive about death...a strange concept for most of us. This candle holder (above) is the sort of thing my husband loves when it turns up. "Great. I was just thinking that we needed a creepy candle holder in the house." He's so supportive of my interior decorating!
This is a top I finished last week made from my fabric. I'm still mucking around with the pattern a little bit, but it is wearable. I am working on a long sleeve winter shirty type thing at the moment so I hope I get that organised for next week. I was also going to take a photo of my mexican tin cactus decorations which we put on the Christmas tree, but then we would be getting into a whole nother obsession of mine...Christmas decorations......Happy creating!
