Spring Greens

Ever since I was a little kid, I always loved to sew.

Not just to be able to make things, but the actual meditative act of stitching.

The up & down, the back & forth, like the inhale & exhale, it’s a rhythm I melt into.

As part of my year full of color project, TWELVTY, I spent much February stitching together these gorgeous little textile wall art pieces from layers of hand-dyed recycled fabric, paper, buttons, beads and embroidered together with happy thoughts.

All of these concoctions are in the color of the month: ranging shades of yellow-green from luscious lime to opulent olive.

These ones are mounted on 8″ square canvas board. There are four, they’re equally lovely on their own, or grouped together as a little family.


You can find all of these creations (and more!)
in my Etsy shop

Your email is utterly safe to me. It will be tucked up snug and nestled with a hot water bottle until the spring arrives. I will bring it fresh socks every three weeks, or as required.

  1. These are gorgeous little pieces of textile art. I have never been any good at sewing and am always a pragmatic sewer, never for pleasure. However, seeing these lovely, textural, abstract pieces of yours makes me at least ponder giving sewing for pleasure a try.

    1. thanks so much Laura. I love these have inspired you to sew! The fun of something like this is it doesn’t have to withstand wear and laundry in the way a garment does – textile art is way more forgiving ! You can even glue instead of sew if it gets frustrating, or to get different effects. And paint on it too… the possibilities are endless!

  2. These pieces are really a work of art, Mixy! I love them! From the colors (green and shades of is a favorite), texture, and time and love put into doing this makes it so special. You make sewing so easy!
