MARSALA FLOWER POT
After playing around so much with the dyeing and thinking we had it as good as it could get the moment you start joining it all together they start changing as they bounce off each other. Needless to say the pot and the right background were the two Hilary & I thought were as near as dammit.
On pondering what my piece was going to be I suddenly realised how much of the colour or similar hues I have around my garden and they all have the lime green as well. I went with one of my terracotta / Marsala ?? pots I have around the garden. The intention was to have the leaves hanging off the border but in my rush I quilted them down hence they have been chopped off. I think I will go back and add possibly 3 'loose' leaves that will sort that out. I also realised afterwards I had cut the green shibori fabric on the left binding the wrong way. That is staying.
Here are a couple of the other 'things' I have around me in the garden along with, can you believe it, a ball of wool, almost in the correct colour, that was in my goodie bag from our Festival.
