Not Your Grandmother's Flower Garden


8" x 10"

I added a few beads, but only rearranged beads on one flower. Those things were TIGHT. When I bead, I bead. I also decided it looked better in this orientation than in the landscape one although I'm still not totally sure of that. I think I owe the idea of turning it to Nellie, who turned her "Imagine Monet" with wonderful results. I could critique on and on, but in general I'm pleased. There are a few stray threads in the picture, but I rushed to take the picture while the afternoon sun made the quilting texture show up so well.

Thanks for all the interesting comments on my math rant. I guess we all muddle through, whether we have math problems or not. The important thing, in my view, is to at least try.

Eye-catching. In every sense of the word. That quilting really grabbed me. You did a fine job indeed.

What a pretty piece Kay. Love the colors.
I get lazy about math since I live in a house full of math and science wizards. I must try harder to figure things out without going to the source.

This looks good in either orientation, which means it would be easy to hang.

I think I like this orientation best. The quilting, the beading, the soft color--this piece turned out so well!

So pretty - I like how the edges are cut off.

It does have a vintage feel to it but also has a contemporary quality-good duality!

I like the added sparkle and the leaves you stitched into the background. Lovely details.
