WIP Wednesday

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Since I've started my shop at Etsy, I've joined a super group of sellers called the European Street Team. We are a diverse group of artists and quite a few countries are represented. They have welcomed me with open arms and are very encouraging and supportive, I couldn't have found a better group! Every week, the group has a themed challenge and this week it's Back to Nature.

Depuis que j’ai ouvert mon magasin à Etsy, j’ai rejoint un groupe sympa de vendeurs qui s’appelle l’European Street Team. Nous sommes un groupe divers et il y pas mal de pays représentés. Ils m’ont accueillie les bras ouverts et ils sont très encourageants et positifs. Je ne pouvais pas trouver un meilleur groupe ! Chaque semaine, le groupe a un défi à thème et cette semaine c’est Retour à la nature.

WIP Wednesday - falling leaves

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do and I finally fell on this. It's kind of hard to tell, but it's leaves in alternating colors and directions. I'm only about three inches into it and I have at least four more to go. Hopefully I can get it all done before the Monday evening deadline! I don't think this pattern is especially medieval, but I think this color combination is perfect for autumn leaves.

To find out more about the European Street Team, please check out the blog, Hand Made Europe.

Il m’a pris un moment pour décider ce que je voulais faire et enfin j’ai trouvé celle-ci. Peut-être que c’est difficile à voir mais ce sont des feuilles dont les couleurs alternes ainsi que des directions. Je n’ai fait que 8 cm et il me reste au moins 10 cm à faire. J’espère l’avoir fini avant la fin du défi, lundi prochain ! Je ne sais pas si ce motif est particulièrement médiéval, mais j’aime bien ces couleurs ensemble pour les feuilles d’automne.

Love this pattern, Vivi! Do you design these yourself?!

Thanks all! Carrie, sometimes I use a combination of motifs from extant bags from the middle ages and original work, but this one is 100% mine. :)
