There's something about a rose . . . this one is living in a pot on my kitchen windowsill, waiting to be planted in my front garden. It may have to wait a while since the garden is over-run with weeds and long grass just now. Meanwhile it's rewarding me with flowers like this one: It's a tiny thing. This pic is about twice life size. The colour also seems to be twice life size.
In terms of my textile work, I am reminded that natural doesn't have to mean subtle. Bright punchy colours here I come!
