Happy As A Clam is finished, label and all. Yippee!! I've delivered it to my designated drop off person for the Sydney Quilt Show that opens next week. It's my first time of entering a quilt in the Big Show as I call it, after all there are usually about 450 quilts hanging. Of course I'm a bit nervous and excited but I'm confident that my denim clam shells will add something a bit different to the variety of quilts that make it such a great show. I'll wait to do the big unveiling of the quilt until next week so I can share photos of it hanging. In the meantime I hope you enjoy this bunch flowers I've picked for you.
I've spent most of my life around flowers. When I was a little girl I'd pick flowers and make daisy chains. I enjoyed pressing and drying flowers, watching them transform into something that would last forever. A favourite game was finding pretty fuchsias and pretending they were fairies with full ball gowns. I'd decorate little fairy palaces made of rocks and sticks with petals and leaves.
I know these aren't flowers but trees are fun too! Especially palm trees that make you think of tropical holidays,
And trees that grow button fruits.
Wishing you a fun flowery day!! And watch out for flower fairies :)
