Added some machine and hand stitching, sequins, pressed flowers, beads etc. These are my happy colours :-)
Last week I went on a mini-holiday to stay with my friend Rosie (the Journalling Queen).
Jackie (Dog Daisy Chains) who lives not too far away. We've never met before so it was a real treat...especially as she brought a boxful of her gorgeous artwork to show us (my request :-) We had a wonderful afternoon!
I'm besotted with my coneflowers (echinacea, rudbekia) at the moment and couldn't resist taking these photos .......I love seeing their progress from bud to full flower.
Also loving the eryngiums......the blue is so surprising, especially on the stems!
Maggi brought me some of her honesty seeds last time she visited and I spent a happy hour making patterns with them (at one time I would have done something like this with a class of children.....but sadly I was on my own this time ;-)
And finally......a few people have messaged me regarding my art wall after seeing a partial view (with Peachy) in my 'Memories' post below. I've been asked to show a full photo........
....so here it is. Not a deliberately 'arty' display; just something that has grown over the past couple of years. The ATCs are attached (with blu-tac) to two wooden rails, screwed to the wall and painted turquoise. If you click on it you might even see your work there!!
