opening it's petals.
They are so beautiful, I adore them!
Planing to paint ... :-)
but are smaller than the white ones, and they open day over.
and there is a pink variety, smaller again,
but the one I used to have did not survive my last move.
I need a new vest and I am using reclaimed teal coloured wool to crochet something "more lacy". It is quite thick wool and the squares turn out 17 cm square.
21 squares done, -
keeping going until the wool runs out :-)
though I have not worked out how to arrange - connect the squares yet ...
I've started a new tapestry with an ancient Egyptian theme.
It took a while to work the design out
and transfer it.
The background colour is the solar dyed - natural dye stuff - hand spun silk. For the main figures, I will mainly use wool, cotton and gold yarn.
A slow start, but going now :-)
I also have a tapestry for sale in my Etsy shop (link to it is in the right hand space of this page).
It's ideal for a small space, for example next to book shelf or fire place ...
A climbing Vine with Butterfly.
17 cm x 90 cm with a green brocade surround and backing
and a hanger.
Closer up picture.
Otherwise I am busy making presents, - that time of year!
And since there is Thanksgiving on the other side of the world,
I take the opportunity to thank all my Blogger friends
for reading and commenting or just being there :-) !
