dark and bright, dark and light

The garden is in full bloom, and Zucchini season has begun.  I found this lovely bright bloom this morning.


and nearby under a big leaf…


And then the dark comes from local farms

Stellar Farms on Oldfield road in Saanich has the best blueberries I’ve ever tasted. Including Duke blueberries that are the size of small cherries! They didn’t survive the car ride home.  Oops. No sprays or pesticides either. Yum.

On the sewing side, I dug into my bag of neutral scraps to work on a gift.  It is definitely worth having your scraps sorted by general colour for a quick grab for this kind of project.


And started sewing bits together, Cheryl Arkison http://www.cherylarkison.com/ slab style.  After joining a few strips of random size, you put them together to build your chosen size block. It’s fun, but time consuming.  2 hours flew by, and the kids were asking “what’s for dinner”. No wonder they asked, it was 6:45 and I hadn’t even thought of what to cook.  Poor neglected boys.  Hardly!


I can only give you a little peak until this project is gifted, but there is a dark side to this one…


You can see how the slab comes together nice and random. Hopefully my Swallow silhouette works out. Time for hand stitch applique.
