garden lady

I’m not really sure why, but red is the color of this past week. Red and green- my favorite color combination. This lady (like the last baby) is inspired by some quilt applique photos that I’ve got in my notebooks of inspiration.

I used thin strips of wool felt for the lines- something I’ve never tried before. Stitching was just not showing up on the textured black and white background.

Woohoo- I am going to New York City on Thursday/Friday. And probably Portland, ME on Wednesday to pick up Peter. Yep, life is speeding up around here.

  1. Oh gorgeous, gorgeous! I love red and green in all sorts of combos as well. The flowers actually remind me of peacock feathers… dunno why!
    Thanks for sharing.
