The beginings of a garden...

The weeks just come flying in!  I still need to add many things to the blog:  web links in many places & the lovely One Flower Wednesday badge, blogs I visit etc..... Plus, I think the colors can obscure the fonts... but I can't remember how I set it up.... patience, patience she says to herself.  Perhaps I can spend some time this week-end rather than trying to fix it after work... (a bit later:  I messed with template... so the writing shows up now, but I hope to get my own background added.... inch by inch.)


Now to the reason I'm here.... these flowers are so very much fun to make....  I have included flower # 3 with her older sisters in a photo as they audition their future connector fabric.


I can see clearly (or more precisely NOT clearly) that I really must learn how to take photographs if I am to continue blogging..... I always thought the light was good in my studio, but the camera needs more.... (sans shadow.)  Still, I love this project....  I treat it like dessert (or like I OUGHT to treat dessert)  do my other handwork first, then relax with paperpiecing....

 Hope all's well in your world.... good luck tending YOUR garden, in whatever medium you grow.  b
