The Oddball

My tulips are in full swing and I think this year is the first year I've had this many blooming at one time. Plus, I've been trying to stay on top of keeping them sprayed so the deer don't eat them. They got a handful of my plants early on before I had started spraying them. Hmmmm, wonder how that yellow tulip got in there.

I love this grouping of tulips with the pale and deep yellows together.

And look at these little guys coming these!

Today I made a padfolio. The background fabric is a piece of muslin that I had underneath another piece of fabric that was being dyed. The dyes soaked through and left the bottom fabric very pretty. I couched some eyelash yarn onto the background and then free form cut some leaf shapes from some silk fusion and sewed them down. I scalloped the edge of the flap, just for something different.
