For those who haven't seen this before, I'm using Kim McLeans beautiful pattern called Flower Garden.
I am only making five out of the six flower panels in the pattern, and instead of using a plain background for the appliques, I'm making the backgrounds out of stripes of fabric sewn together.
So I only have two long panels to go.
Panels are around 65 x 10 inches each
When I took these photo's the other day, I didn't realise the fairies had been visiting that tree again...
...our little 'fairytale' mushrooms (that is what I call them because until last year I only thought these appeared in fairytales, not in real life!! They are actually called Amanita muscaria). Over a couple of days they go from little babies pushing their way through the soil, to being rather ugly, though statuesque adults!!
