I cut the umbrella (parasol) fabric into squares and started designing on the wall. I decided it needs to be larger, one more row across the bottom and finish the row on the right plus fill in the hole, 9 more blocks. I can start cutting the setting triangles too now that I know how many I need.
Here are 5 pairs of fabric for more pinwheels. I mowed my back yard last night and then storms came into the area and I had my machine unplugged so no sewing.
Now that I have 8 star blocks done I can analyze what other colors I may need to add to it. The white/black fabrics look crisper in person, more grayed in a photo. I will have to be more choosy for the rest of the white/blacks.
Half of my Viburnum bush has flowers and half has none. Does that mean it is both male and female? Luckily the blooms are on the branch that I can see from the kitchen window.
This is my other pale pink columbine. I thought I had lost the plant but it finally came up and shot up a flower stalk about two feet high. The lily of the valley is trying to choke it out.
