When I got home from Chal Baie today, this package of fabric was waiting in my mailbox. I picked them with a project in mind but they may not all end up there.
I planned to get groceries on my way home, but it is warm again and I was feeling weak, so came home instead, made a cup of tea and retired to my studio with the fan. I did a bit of free motion sketching on this single daisy.
It needs a touch up of paint but i thought I'd practice on it before going to the one with 3 daisies. I quite like the black; it makes it look similar to a sketchy pen and ink. I will be adding some handwork to it as well.
We are just beginning to enjoy the benefits of a home garden. My husband built me a small cold frame and the Swiss chard are coming along quite nicely. So delicious sauteed with with garlic, onions, chopped lemon balm, a splash of balsamic vinegar and a sprinkling of pine nuts.
