Early Christmas Tombola

'Moon rising over Tree of Life with a pair of love-birds watching’
yes, it's that time of year folks....
December can be a very expensive month, so I have decided to help you out by:
1. giving away this Small Pillow*
2. offering a 10%discount on all art work, see what's for sale over on the websitehttps://saskiavanherwaarden.nl/en/


Each pillow is handmade using (old) natural fibre fabrics I source from my own cupboards and donations from generous cloth-lovers spread across our planet; I prefer working with cotton, linen and silk; some pieces of cloth have been hand-printed with commercial textile inks and/or home-dyed using plant-based dyes; my favourite stitches are the running stitch, thread beads and simple stars. Each pillow is stuffed with snippets of old clothing and leftovers.
ca 2 x 11 x 14 cm

* how to join in the tombola:
all you have to do is leave a comment below, entries open till next Saturday 14 December Midnight!
On Sunday 15 December I will announce the winner. I will copy your names on snippets of paper, throw them all into my Tweed cap, shuffle and shake, close my eyes & pick one at random....

This lovely little pillow with its tree of life, love birds, moonrise- well it all sings to me of the coming of the light- Winter Solstice. To hold it in my hands would be such a peaceful treat...Thanks Saskia for the drawing.

what a lovely offer ... but if I am fortunate enough to have my name drawn, I would humbly request that you draw another as I have already been gifted by you ...

and I do so love your delightful little birds ... they remind me of those that Natalie Goldberg paints in her marvelous book "Living Color"

Sasx~ Oh, I love this one! My first thought was that after almost 20 years, I still just want to spend my time with J. ~lovebirds! ha
Your beautiful pillows do feel so good in the hands. I like the way Marti put it. Anyway, as Liz said, I have a pillow of yours, so my name need not be put in this time around. That is not to say I wouldn't love to wallow in a pile of these little gems! xo
I love your little pillows and would feel so honoured to have one live with me.

Dear Saskia,

Your work is "Made in wonderland"!
So po√ętical.

As if the playful times in The White House at your parents place never stopped...

Veel liefs,
Mir

Oh hello. More beauty falling out of your hands. As I already have a favored object, if you pick me pass it along! Great idea.
