A visit to Kew and a new project

11th June 2020

Went to Kew on Tuesday after my sister booked our slot.....






.....wonderful aliums in the borders...





.....so sad to have missed this display in flower but the seed heads looked magnificent.....



....these beds are usually glorious but now are being prepared for spring planting....






.....still a lot of colour and wonderful scents from the rose garden where we ate our socially distanced lunch.

I decided to make a colourful wall hanging for my grandson....

.....sponge dyed calico with Brusho....




....added hand dyed fabrics from my stash...



....the next 2 photos are in the wrong order!!! Blogger have changed the format which isn't as good as previously. The second photo shows coloured squares of fabric backed with bondaweb, I positioned them, took a photo for reference, then ironed each square in place, took a while!

I have a couple of Elmer books in my granddaughters box so was able to trace the shape and size I needed then cut it out of freezer paper which was ironed on the squared fabric. I cut the ear out separately so that it flapped.




I am quite pleased with the result after backing with calico.


Not sure what my next project will be.......
