Crazy About This Korean Lilac

As the azaleas pass, so emerges the miniature Korean lilac. This little tree was a rescue when we bought our house. Squished up against a corner of the house, it demanded change. I’ve never regretted making it the garden centerpiece. She blooms so heavy it’s time to prune her this fall because her branches are struggling to sustain themselves. Go girl!

hostas
I’m still collecting new hosta varieties. A shade garden is ideal.

Parrot tulips are a tulip favorite for design purposes. I look for strength of character in a flower. This one? Gobs of character.

This is no ordinary tulip. It was a standalone in a field of green.
Azalea
And here it is. Azalea Riot. As much as I love them, I’ve never figured out how best to feature azaleas in my scarf designs. A profusion of loveliness found only in the azalea landscape. On order to print to chiffon this week.

See all our scarves in-house. Ready for order.

Meet some new fabric I’ve just started printing. It’s an all cotton lightweight gauze. It is lovely -a little heavier than the chiffon but awfully cool. I’ve run three hot blue designs to show it off. Here’s one called The Blues.

The Blues-100% Organic Cotton

AND, I still have some on hand. See all our in-stock scarves here.

What do you think? Due to my hand surgery I haven’t prepared photos for the scarf pages yet but know, I have three printed and more will be ready to sell in February.

And, never fear! Visions of new designs are dancing in my head as I plot returning to the Computer and of course, a soon- to -emerge, spring growing season. Hope all your good visions come true!

Our scarves and pillows begin in the garden. I capture their growing cycle with a digital Nikon which offers limitless options for their use in my artwork. We currently have a line of gorgeous all cotton sateen pillows in stock. I ship direct anywhere in the United States. Our chiffon made-to-order scarves have enjoyed rapid sales starting Spring 2018. And, this fall, the new infinity scarves. You can order by text or email me direct.

scarves
Spring is here. We’re showing at the Simsbury Fair -which has been postponed to the end of summer. I’ve been sewing diligently and working on new designs too. Check out scarves now in stock here.
