There’s is a veritable tangled garden growing along the rest of the deck. Mingling and winding their way are snap peas, morning glories, tomato’s, cucumber, Brussels sprouts, peppers and a few tomato plants.
In the raised bed, there is lettuce, carrots and broccoli and by the back door besides herbs, I have one large yellow zucchini plant.
Most of the poppies are done but I especially liked the sunny picture of this small one with the seed pods.
Using my pictures as reference I sketched a few designs on some various small pieces of fabric. With Derwent Inktense blocks I painted the coneflower and then took them to the machine to free motion outline with black. While the black thread was on the machine, I also finished outlining flowers on a piece of flower painted canvas which I want to use to make a sketchbook holder.
I will be adding color to the poppies. I plan to use them as a front and back for a small bag.
Already I trimmed the cone flower and picked out and cut backing and lining fabrics for a small bag.
I just had to follow my creative flow but now it’s time to pack up and change. Hubby is loading the kayaks and we’re heading out for a paddle. Haven’t decided where yet. That’s what summer weekends are about.
