A wine sunflower to add to the stack of finished ones. Now there are 30 done.
I think there are at least another 20 ready to stitch in this box. Maybe even another 30. I’ll have to find another white on white for the little triangles as I’ve run out of the ones I’ve been using. It has to be nice to needle as I’ve learned the hard way that some of them are so heavily painted on that they’re impossible to work with.
I’ve decided that I’ll make all the ones in the box and then sort out what colours I need to add. I’m thinking 120 of these wonderful little 6″ Inklingo sunflowers will make a great quilt. And I’ve thought of a border although that will remain up in the air until I get them all done and put together. This is clearly going to be a long-term project.

Have you seen this book – 500 Traditional Quilts? Oh, my — what wonderful eye candy this is. Every page has a gorgeous quilt or two. I have a feeling I’ll be looking at this over and over and over again. Pure inspiration on every page. It makes me want to start another quilt or two or three.
Our wonderful curtain of green leaves is changing. When the sun hits the tree at a certain point it’s almost glowing now. And the falling leaves are of great interest to two kitties.
