Same but different?

I hope so.
Even though I've made dozens of these and enjoyed every one, I still manage to discover that there are ways of making it more fun.


The sputnik shape above is a small variation on the floral.
Of course there's always Paisley, one of my favourite motifs but quite difficult to do in this trimmed felt method.


SOLD

Then there's the possibility to make the variation in colour.
Its quite tricky to come up with different schemes when you've made so many but I thought as autumn approaches (actually it feels like February today)I would colour accordingly.
The background felt here is a really nice mix of wool and silk fibres in browns and olives and navy blue.

SOLD (twice!)
Just right for the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'!

But if anyone is feeling a bit less mellow how about sophisticated silvery grey?
Thats the misty bit.
Sophisticated splats?


SOLD
Or splodges?

They are definitely sophisticated splats and I love them all. They just seem to get better and better the more you make. The colours are gorgeous and the autumn one is very elegant.

BTW, they'll always be protists to me. Isn't that a song lyric?

All of them are so wonderful. I adore each variation, shape and color combo. Together they are as fantastic and drool producing as an exquisite chocolate shop.

kay susan said...

Especially like the sputnik, but quite partial to the paisley! Great stuff!

LOVE STITCHING RED said...

My fave is the silver one but it's because your purple velvet swirl in the middle looks so rich just like plum ripple icecream

julie king said...

i'm really liking the gray and pink one! but then again every one is just wonderful!

ArtPropelled said...

Splodges or starbursts...your work is so beautiful. I love the way the centre is raised in a sort of spiral.

Funny you should think of Sputnik...my husband and I just attended the first talk in a series of space exploration talks at our local science library.. The speaker was one of the last astronauts to land on the moon... and he cited Sputnik as instilling the desire to explore space in him as a youngster.

Judy Scott said...
