Here are 3 more garden flower photos to help us make colour choices. I love the plum blossoms so am including one more photo.
Leave a comment if any of these pictures inspire you to choose colours for your quilts. I’ll be happy to hear from you.
Craftsy has a new quilt class starting – Quilt-As-You-Go Patchwork Bags.
You’ll want to watch the introductory video. These will make great gifts for birthdays and other occasions. Of course, we’ll want to make some for ourselves, as well!
Joanne Burley took these great photos of her recent visitors.
Thank you for sharing them, Joanne.
Don’t they look comfortable among the white and purple violets?
I’ll be sharing some of our garden photos in the next while, not only because of the beauty of nature, but because Mother Nature’s colours are such an inspiration to quilters. We are always looking for new colour themes. Imagine putting these whites, greens, and blues together in a quilt.
A Happy Mother’s Day to All Mothers and to those who Mother!
This is a photo of my beautiful mother at 16.
Below is a photo of my parents’ wedding with all of their bridal party,
followed by one of just Mom.
One of my Dad’s brothers, my late Uncle Sam, is in the photo above.
He’s the one on the far right.
We miss her so much!
If you are still fortunate enough to have your mother, be sure to give her a huge hug today,
tell her you love her, and count your blessings!
Spring has been very tardy in coming this year, but it is finally here! As you can see from my photo, our daffodils are in full bloom. Forsythia bushes are a beautiful, buttery yellow and tulips are beginning to bloom, too. The weather is finally sunny and warm.
Hope you are enjoying a lovely spring wherever you may be. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, I hope your winter is not too cold!
