I just finished my August color block. The photos above show the month's flowers, smoky skies from Canadian wildfires, brown grass from drought conditions, shoreline, dark green trees and blue and white skies.
Here is the finished block:
I pulled out green silks for the trees and a torn strip of hand-painted pink for the flowers.
Bronze and silver meshes became the shoreline and silvery water.
The latest photo of Bunners from my daughter.
Grey cheesecloth and some sheers became the smoky skies.
But yesterday the smoke cleared and I was able to stitch outside on the patio in the sun -- finally!
Have a colorful day
