Whenever I'm looking for good folksy art and craft ideas, I pick up one of the many vintage (circa 1970's and 1980's) Romanian children's books hidden throughout the bookshelves of the castle. These images are from a version of the three little pigs.
This haystack, for instance, would make a great embroidery pattern or an inspiration for an applique wall hanging using dark threads quilted in straight stitches to "draw" the hay on a deeply tan-yellow fabric.
And this village tablecloth and table setting brings the Transylvanian pottery designs to the forefront. How lovely would this be as a wall hanging made from fabric? Or a quilt block? Or even a watercolor card?
