This and That

     The hydrangeas this year are stunning. This beauty belongs to my friend Donna. The rich hues are reminiscent of a Jinny Beyer's palette. (For those who don't know, Jinny Beyers is a very well-known quilter and fabric designer.)
     Speaking of colors, last week I tried my hand at some fabric dyeing. Since it was my first time, I experimented with some fairly small pieces.

I envision perhaps using sections of these pieces in some small art quilts. Tomorrow if the sun cooperates, I may attempt some sun printing.
     Finally, I took this weirdly amusing photo last month when I made my first and only trip so far this summer to Peaceful Meadows in Whitman.  The ice cream, as always, was creamy and delicious, and I got a kick out of these new cow heads. I wonder what the real cows think of them???


  1. your dying looks good x it has rained solidly for a couple of days and now my hydrangers are coming into bloom .. not sure I can rival your friends lovely blooms x

  2. Love all the beautiful colors you used! The cow heads are so fun and whimsical. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your nice comment.
