My Other 'Very Berry Gathering' ..

Hello my dear friends,

it is quite late in the the day now but I still wanted, as I had promised, to share my second 'Very Berry Gathering' pincushion with all you Lovelies today.

I made it from untouched drop cloth but unfortunately the lighting was a little too bright when I took the photographs of my newest creation, so I wasn't quite able to capture the true color of the drop cloth, which is a pale gray. 

 I am not sure which I like more now ... this one, the 'as is' gathering or the red dyed gathering that I had shared with you a few days ago.

Everything apart from the color of the drop cloth is exactly the same as my first 'Very Berry Gathering', I just changed the way the berries were hanging on the brass ring. Very alike but then again they both look is very different.

The little berry in the the photograph above is very close to the actual color of the drop cloth that I used to create it with.

I hope you have enjoyed my newest drop cloth strawberry creation. 

I am again very pleased with the way it has turned out and I am sure I will be making a few more of them soon. I have of course a lot of  'as is' drop cloth left over and I have just checked how much of the reddish drop cloth is left over. It's a little 'patchy' as in the color didn't take to the fabric the same all over but then again strawberries aren't always one solid color. I am also wanting to try to bleach some drop cloth and maybe make a few white strawberries. I wonder if that would work out?! I guess I will just have to wait and so will you Lovelies too.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit me here at Todolwen. I love when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Wow, so beautiful! And a wonderful idea. Wish you a very nice Sunday.

    Cheers, Heidrun

  2. My favorit is the red one, but this one is very nice too!

    Hugs Ines♥

  3. They are both perfect just the way they are. Not every berry is the same!


  4. I love them both, but this one has stolen my heart. I'd love to see a white one too.

  5. It's amazing what you can do with a drop cloth - nobody would ever be able to guess that's what you used.
