This and That

It was another dreary day in Portland today. On our misty walk with Scooter this morning, I saw these beautiful flowers. Purple and yellow  — the colors of the next Twelve by Twelve color theme. They brought a little sunshine into my day.

I finished quilting the Old Growth Forest piece and am not that happy with it. I love the quilted background. I love the felted trees, but I am not sure they are working together. I will do a zigzag edge on them – perhaps in lime green to give it some pizazz.

Here is a detail.

I will finish it and photograph it. Maybe I have just spent too much time with it!!

Hope you are all enjoying a nice holiday week-end with better weather than we are having.
