I’m surely not about to show a photo of my daffodils right now. The poor things look like poster children for lost hopes. Instead, here’s a photo I took last week of a retaining wall by my driveway. I thought it had quite a two color modern vibe, with the regular dollops of white on top of the bricks, and an asymmetric pattern. My favorite element is the ruffly band of snow on the left bottom edge.

Wonderful image. I think you see things many people would just pass by!
Thanks. I started this series to make me see things I would otherwise overlook.
I’ll look forward to seeing your fabric interpretation of this one. I also find inspiration in the colors and textures of my landscape. The east-facing roof of our storage shed sports a persistent crop of moss (despite my husband’s efforts!). In all but the hottest weather the Crayola “spring green” moss glows against the deep slate-grey shingle just after rain.
I don’t know if I want to stick close to the original colors or go totally off the rails, colorwise. I know that moss color and like it, but understand it’s a maintenance headache. Remember when there was a craft craze to get moss to grow on pots?
I have 15 blueberry bushes in my yard that I usually get gallons of blueberries for jam and syrup each year. They were in full bloom last week before we got a spring freeze here in NC. I’m sick that I won’t get any blueberries this year.
We even got a snow last week, which is rare here, even in winter.
Ouch! I’ll have to check on whether the blueberry places here in Ohio had similar damage.
Looks like the Delectable Mountains quilts in two colors. 🙂
Will that be your next 2 color quilt?
Maybe. I am still not sure what will come next. I’m almost done with this “antique” top. I’d like to do a couple of wild-and-free medallions next, with less effort and brain power involved.
Waiting to see this translated to fabric . . . trying to be patient!
My mother always said I would try the patience of a saint.
