Colorful Spring Textiles

Embroidered Mexican Textiles, Otomi

A few blogs ago I wrote about using one’s creativity with Otomi textiles. In this photo are the edges of some colorful Otomi embroidered textiles that I made into pillows and table runners. I am in the process of making a large one into a headboard.  And  will also cover a small ottoman with a multicolored one.  Both will be in the shop when we open in the spring…

There is something so joyful about these embroidered pieces–the color, the whimsical animals combined with flowers and plants against the hardworking muslin and the exuberance expressed in every piece.
