Texture Tuesday......Quiet

I bought this lovely pot of white muscari at my local garden centre this week for only £1.40....bargain!
I have a garden full of the blue version which, although we moan about it, I do actually like very much.
But this white version is very special, it seems to have a special serene quality.....and it smells lovely too, which is a bonus.
So above is my offering for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday....I have cheated slightly and used the word 'silence' instead of  'quiet'  ;-)
I used a few of Kim's textures, but the main one was 'Phoebe'.
Muscari Aucheri 'White Magic'

Still plodding on with my needle cases.
These two are almost finished....
 And my fabric weaving now feels like a single piece of cloth.......ready for embellishment.

Off now to look at my Bloglovin' list. 
Have you discovered it yet? Its a great way of keeping up to date with your favourite blogs......and for finding  new ones.
Back soon....

Hi Linda, love the white muscari, not seen white ones before, only blue, do they have pink ones I wonder?
Would that be Tro**ll garden centre by any chance? If it is, I can ask my friend to pick me a pot or two up as they live nearer to it than I do!
As always, loving your work. You always use colour combos that I like!

Bloglovin' is excellent...isn't it!
Your needle cases are gorgeous...I am so drawn to the things you created

your lovely photography!

Muscari has always been very special to me...
a sweet connection to our Alex when he was a little boy...
your whites with the bulbs showing in the pot are really splendid too!

Just had a fab time catching up with all your new doings. I really hope you manage to get the health problems sorted. Fortunately more specialist foods are a lot easier to find nowadays and I hope it all starts to work out for you. :o)
