|Polka dots - the original plan|
|A dark brown tone on tone|
|The brown as a frame, with a black/white crosshatch|
Hmmm, does it look better from a distance? I started to feel that every border was being contained by a "solid" frame... and that I needed a bit more space.
OK, what about with just the black/white crosshatch? Not too dark, not too light - a nice bit of space... hmm??
Yip - Thunder Birds A Go!
|Love me a bit of sketch|
One border on... just three more to go... but what shall I do for the cornerstones? Oh, dear, more decisions. I'm starting to remember why this project went onto the back burner all those months ago. But I'm really happy with how it's looking, and now that I've committed to a direction - it should progress quite quickly. I'm only planning a feature fabric border around this one, so it is possible this could actually get finished. Wouldn't that be exciting - after all, it's only been a couple of years or so in the making :0)
I even tidied my fabric cupboard in an effort to put off making decisions. It didn't help, but at least I can see inside the cupboard again :0)
Having a wander around the wilderness that is our garden, it seems spring is here! Bulbs and blossoms...
Last year this tree had one lonely fruit on it - I'm not even really sure what it was, perhaps a nectarine. This year it is absolutely covered in flowers.
This wee peach tree is just over a metre tall...
And it's covered in these beautiful flowers - summer in the orchard might just be tasty this year!
