It's All About Flowers!


My Garden Hydrangea pillow is hooked, and now on to the assembly.  I think I'm going to stuff it, and hand-sew on a soft wool backing.  I had lots of fun prodding the edges!


I took the following photos around some of our back gardens this morning.  The iris is gorgeous right now, and the peonies are just opening.  One of my favorite "happies" is to make a peony bouquet and put them in an old glass Ball jar.

































Hope you enjoyed a nice little garden stroll!

Your flowers and garden look lovely but I'm fascinated with the colorful fence in the background. Is there a story there? Can we see more of it?

Love the fringe around the edge of your pillow - it adds a lot of interest to the piece. Looks so springy!

Dulcy, when you said you were going to proddy the edges I couldn't imagine what it would look like! Well it looks fabulous!!! And so does your garden.
I'll try to bring your books by this week.

Love the way your pillow turned out! The prodded edge is fun! Like Kim I am curious about your fence in the garden? It's awesome! Cathy G

The pillow is so pretty - I love the prodded edge. Your garden is very pretty too (I like the painted fence - did you do it?)
