Summer of Color (Brown)

I am finally getting around to posting my brown week items.  I have had a lot going on this week, so even though I finished early I just didn't get around to posting.
I want to say thank you to everyone that commented last week.  It is nice to be encouraged and appreciated.

This is my first brown piece.  I decided to use all the colors of hand dyed brown fabric to make a collage.  I used pieces of old watches for interest.  The green watch part is my bold color.

This is the next brown piece that I and my sister have been working on for my niece.  She loves horses so we are making her a horse shirt for her fourth birthday.  This is a great way to use brown with a bold color. 
 We put a small applique of cowgirl boots on the back of the shirt.

The next two items are my daughter's submissions. 
 A friendship bracelet made from brown and pick yarn.
Her first ATC.  The saying by Dr. Seuss is:
You know you're in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
Have a fun time creating for red week.

Your nice is going to love that shirt!! What a fantastic present!

I love the concept of your collage. One of the quotes that have been with me for many years now is "Time is life", and seeing your work reminds me that life flies, so we better make sure we make good use of it.

Your daughters work is very cool.

I was just thinking how easily you can tell the difference of age just by reading the different quotes.
Your daughter's says romantic, yours, a more pragmatic one.
