While I spent my day working on the wall hanging I can't show here, I do want to spend a little time talking about it (but only a little time). I finished the center portion, but then discovered that my fears at the beginning of the project were based in reality. Since I had pulled my background fabric from my stash, I knew I might not have enough for the borders. After measuring and confirming that I had been correct, and indeed, I don't even have enough for what I considered might be my fall back design for the border. After sitting and thinking and doing even more math (you know how much I love that!), my level of discomfort went up as I came up with an idea that I think will be really great. If I have it figured correctly. We'll see!
Then I took a break and went outdoors to water D's bonsai, check the plantings I did yesterday, and see if I could snap some photos that might make future painting subjects. See what you think ;
In this first one, the crimped edges of the petals would make me suitably un - comfortable!
Oh, the colors and shapes of these make me swoon!
And then there is this one - drama personified. But is it a painting? or really a photo? or even, maybe, a drawing?
