the one where I go on about Olivia Mew

'buttercup' by olivia mew
{above: my 'buttercup' canvas patch from feverfew}

I bought the above piece of fabric art as soon as I saw it in Olivia Mew's feverfew Etsy shop.
Two things led me to this quick decision: 1. the sweet fox, & 2. the word buttercup!
Okay, and the price was beautifully accessible! I love affordable art!
Thank you Olivia Mew.
When 'buttercup' arrived in the mail yesterday, I fell in love all over again!
Luckily, I had an embroidery hoop that was its exact size. Bonus points for it being a perfect shade of blue!
I'll clean up the edges somehow & will hang it either on my wall of nature, or in my studio space for inspiration. I may even want to use it to create a functional textile piece (a tote, a pillow, etc.).
Heck, I may even do some freehand embroidery or quilting on it to give it some dimension!
ah, inspiration, it's the most wonderful thing to be given.

a few more Mew designs:

I hope you enjoyed this little ode to Olivia Mew!
with buttercup joy,
Caren
