i have to say today has been one of those days ! i prepared photos and wrote a blog post this morning and all appeared to be ok, however when i pressed the publish button, well it wouldn't publish !!! so i walked away, came back, my physio came, came back, still nothing happening ! no need to say more, i'm doing it again !
i'm often spoiled with flowers and gifts, these sweet native orchids were so pretty
the detail that nature provides is just amazing and wonderful, we know that, but i love to just stop and think it over sometimes !
this almost black tulip was also very interesting as the tight green bud opened to this deep colour
there is an experiment taking place, i'm cutting from my fabrics these hexagon shapes, lots of different patterns, from templates that i have had for years ! i'm seeing my friends through the colours that i've seen them use over many years and choosing the colour scheme for each of them. so far so good, i'm enjoying the process and the recipients are all anxious to get their next surprise package just ready to sew ! i'll share some with you !
remember every friend is different
can't possibly show you all of them, but at the end there will be many quilts and all the same but different
loving also the texture of linen and embroidery threads
this is a new design from 'mrs sew & so' and will be available with others patterns soon to be in my etsy store
this is part of another new pattern ! i'm waiting on the delivery of a new printer, we won't go into that story, the second replacement, at no cost to me other than frustration !!!
and another, all those stitches !
these beautiful roses from anna's garden were so lovely to live with for a short time, the perfume that filled the air was so wonderful
just so very beautiful ...........................
marg, margaret sampson george is coming to stay again in a couple of weeks and so i have been doing a bit more with this
carolyn and tracey came to visit last friday and we had some show and tell ! tracey brought her very lovely version on jenny kingwell's 'the circle game' to show me because i had admired it on her instagram
though the light conditions were not very good for photos, tracey has chosen a lovely soft pallet of colours
and to finish, more roses, been thinking of my dad today, born in 1909 on this day
the first spring blooms from my garden
