Elvis Meets Disco

Gotta love it when great stitching minds come together!  This is another collaboration between myself and a few friends.

At market a few weeks ago I launched a new line that I am affectionately calling the hippie line.  You know I love color and what is more colorful than the art  of the 60's?  We did LOVE, PEACE and WOW in an assortment of sizes and shapes. 

This little love canvas is part of the series.  Vicky De Angelis stitched it double quick adding her special touch with stitches, threads and crystals.  Then it was off to the finisher extraordinaire to finish it into a pillow just in time for market.  To give it that 60's feel it needed to be finished with white leather :-)  But then it needed a modern twist.  Somewhere in there it became a little Elvis and a little disco. Oh well, I love it.

The fun bursts of color in the background remind me of fireworks so what better day than the 4th of July to share this piece with you/ 

Happy 4th everyone.
