Inspiration in my Flowergarden

A walk in my Flowergarden this morning always inspires me. I am torn whether to spend time outside, or alternatively in my sewing room. Both spots fill me with excitement. I am lucky indeed to have 2 passions.
A trip out on Saturday and I found these two georgous fabrics that I had to bring home with me. The brown one is to finish off my Shangrala Quilt that I started after the Quilt Fair and just needs a final boarder, and the pink one is a flannel, and when it comes to flannel, and I get to feel it, it just speaks to me, and I NEED it. It just felt so soft and yummy and had my favourite flowers on it, so I will have to invent something to make with it, and I'm sure that won't be too hard.The dried up flowers on my succulents are really captivating me at the moment. Their form is amazing and they make me think of dinosaurs, or really really old people with wrinkly skin. They are just beautiful to me.

Wow! Two posts full of loveliness - sorry I haven't commented before - I seem to be disappearing under mountains of sewing and allotment weeds!

That scarf you made is gorgeous and your photos are brilliant.

I'm like you with my twin passions for the allotment and crafting - I'm just struggling to get the balance right at the moment.

Hope you have a good weekend. Lucy xxx

I can't believe that lucious fabric is a flannel. That is just gorgeous. I'd vote for a day in the sewing room.

Your photos are wonderful, as usual. Such pretty, pretty flowers.
