While I was working on those, my little pal came in and rooted around in some green of her own. She is a very messy girl.
She's become an excellent helper cat, however. Here she's rearranging this little doll quilt my grandmother made. I keep it as a cover for my light box, and she thought it could be put to better use.
When I had the block lotto pair finished, I took a walk around. The purple iris has opened all the way now, and another one has opened as well.
We're really enjoying these variegated blue iris this year. They seem to have more diversity of color patterns than we've noticed before...or maybe we're just paying better attention.
The dark purple rhododendron is very pretty right now.
After that, I went back into the sewing room to get a start on my block for this month's
The color for May is forest green with a hint of brown...like a tree in the forest. There are eight different camper blocks for the Amy Bradley "Camper" pattern I'm working from. Color aside, I decided this one would best work for me this month. Sorry for the blur...the pattern cover is blurred too.
In digging around in my green scraps, I wasn't happy with my choices. They're kind of boring, and I found myself wishing I had something a little more fun to work with. I took the design this far before quitting for the day. I suppose a green pine bough batik is about as forest green as one can get.
