They are so beautiful together!!!!!!! Our baby horse Arrow has joined him for the photos!
My Husband in his new coat that I made for his birthday! I did a lot of thread painting on this one! Thread painting (also known as free motion sewing) on wool is great! Yes, it takes a lot of time but it is worth it!
The coat pattern is Vogue 8842. I used two layers of wool, also interlined with a wool gaberdine and then lined with lining.
The snow flakes are done partly with block printing and partly thread painting.
Got to have a hanging loop!
I added side pockets.
Here is a close up of the thread painting.
"Franz Marc's Blue Horses
I step into the painting of four blue horses.
I am not even surprised that I can do this.
One of the horses walks toward me.
His blue nose noses me lightly. I put my arm
over his blue mane, not holding on, just
He allows me my pleasure.
Frans Marc died a young man, shrapnel in his brain.
I would rather die than try to explain to the blue horses
