New piece beginning and a walk around my garden.
I loved the group of fabrics that turned out to be warm orangey yellow leading to the grey/blue, and have pieced bits of them together alreay to make a piece about chrysanthemums.
I have no major plan/design for this one at this stage, as it is similar in layout to others I've done. I shall just let it grow, even if the subject matter is one I haven't tried before.
I thought you might also like a quick tour of the garden, which is small but packed with as much colour as space and ability will allow.
It's that orangey yellow again. Iris and um, a thingy-type plant, whose name I can't remember. Smallus Leafus palmatum horizontallus, I expect!!
Multi: Linaria Neon lights
Blue: veronica of some kind.
saxifraga elliots variety
Rhododendron: Mrs Charles E Pearson.
btw when I was 7 I got a gold star for being able to spell rhododendron.....so why do I have to think about it so hard at 55?
Bottle brush plant which was a Mothers Day and Easter present.
