Pillow - The Angel with the Colibris - Polster - Der Engel mit den Kolibris - Coussin - L'Ange avec les Colibris - Almohadoncito - El Angel con los Colibrís


This small pillow is felted and embroidered. I appliqué the little angel with the colibris on a crochet cushion with the backing made of a waxed african cotton. It is signed and appliquéd in the back.
20 x 20 cm - 8"  x 8"



Dieser kleiner Polster ist gefilzt und bestickt. I habe den kleinen Engel mit den Kolibris auf einen gehäkelten Polster appliziert. Der Rücken ist aus einem afrikanischen gewachsten Stoff, er ist auch appliziert und ich habe meine Unterschrift drauf bestickt.
20 x 20 cm



Ce petit coussin est fait avec du feutre et brodé. J'ai appliqué le petit ange avec les colibris sur un hexagone fait au crochet. Le dos du coussin est fait avec un tissu ciré africain. J'ai fait des applications sur ceci et j'ai brodé mes initiales.
20 x 20 cm



Este almohadoncito está decorado con fieltro y bordados. El fondo es de crochet. El forro está hecho de una tela encerada africana. También lo apliqué y bordé mis iniciales.

End of the Challenge and How To!

The winner is

JOLAN DUFOURNE

You win this page of my booklet!!!




How to proceed with your partner:

I took always two papers at a time from the basket where I had put them. Each couple of partners will exchange one page with the other. It doesn't have to be one of their finished booklet but be fair and send a wonderful one to the participant that luck has put you in contact with!

Once you receive the page, please upload it to the challenge folder telling who sent it to you...

...and stay tuned, once I come back from Austria I will be beginning with a new challenge! 

Thank you all for participating and I can tell you I am proud of all that happened in it!

Now in English - Some photos of my studio and new dwelling...


Second time in my life I live on a 14th floor... karma? Once in Vienna, now in Buenos Aires...


Chose Scandinavian this time...


...but - you know me - can't keep it quite minimalistic.


The studio isn't quite 100% ready. 


Must sort out many things yet.


These ghosts shall prevent the city's soot to claim the mechanism of the machines but what am I going to do with all that white????


After so much work I need a good night sleep...
