I've got the sunflower bug, caught from Evelyn / Starfishy
Thank you Evelyn - this is great fun :-)
Great fun to visit with a zip lock bag of ready cut tumblers. Perfect for a day most suitable to do small threads and fondle fabric.
I want to redo one of the flowers, and mix in one different yellow, to catch up with the orange, or change the orange to another softer one. I am sure you can see the flower ?
Row 2, the left one.
Lamp light does not bring out the true colours of these blocks.
I have made several of these flowers before, both as sunflowers and as poinsettias, but I have never made anything other than potholders from them.
I am not sure what I will make from these yet, but it will be something bigger than potholders I can promise you.
I have been thinking down many lanes today,
and braids in blue alternated with sunflower vines might be something to think more about - a topper for my dinner table maybe :-)
The two finished flowers on the top I spent most of the afternoon and evening looking for. I knew they were there, somewhere, and I knew I had seen them recently.
Isn't it typical - starting to look for something, not finding it where I thought it were, looking all over, not being able to let it go, and in the end, after searching through binders, boxes and drawers I found it in the magazine box on my desk, behind some purse papers, in a plastic pocket, where it did not belong at all ?
I can tell you this much - I still need to organize my papers even better, again !!
I will save this sunflower project to another day calling for small threads, and work on my list projects for the next days -
promise, I think ;-)
