New Eclectic Essence Floral Collection

Here are a few pictures of the new Eclectic Essence Floral scarf and hand warmers.  This was again a custom order by a return customer.  She happened to be my first order on Etsy and I was honoured to see her come back for a second batch of my designs.  🙂  This design is my Eclectic Essence set that I brought out last fall, but they were in hand painted colours of purples, blues, orange etc.  My customer wanted a black background with red and green accents.  I loved the idea right away and off I went to see what I would become.  I like how it turned out as the colours add an even more eclectic feel to the overall design, at least in my opinion.

You can view more pictures on my Etsy store at this link for the scarf at: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/164339013/eclectic-essence-floral-neck-warmer?ref=shop_home_active

I enjoy making custom orders as it combines both my ideas and the customers into one design.  Makes the outcome more special and exciting to see along the way.  I must run and get back to working on more of these pieces.   Have a wonderful day today.

There are many more designs on my site at www.intricateknits.etsy.com or website at www.vbaberdesigns.com

A sneak peek into the Opera Art Project designs for the up coming season of the Edmonton Opera.  As I have mentioned in previous blogs I have the pleasure of designing with a group of amazing local Artists in the Opera Art Project.  These two collar style scarves are one of a kind pieces and add a unique touch to your wardrobe.  I will go more into the designs and what overall design is symbolic for as well as the embellishments.  These two designs pertain to all three Opera’s this season in one way or another.  The gold bling silk yarn, by www.artyarns.com is for the 50th Anniversary of the Edmonton Opera.

I will talk more in detail about these designs and the corresponding hand warmers when I finish them.   Just thought I would tease you with what I have been working on lately.  Stay tuned for more Opera Art designs…..hint these are based on the 3 Opera’s Madama Butterfly, Salome, and Die Fledermaus.
