I have a quick update to share on my rocket stitching project from the Space Pattern.
The rocket is done:
and I am just adding some stitching in yellow to accentuate the orange blastoff exhaust. Now I need to fill in the count down numbers and the words. I am having a hard time deciding which colors to use for these. I tried the red on the number three and I tried the bright orange on the exclamation mark but I am not really sold on either one:
Hmmm....here is my color palette so far. If you have any color ideas I would love to hear your suggestions!
After I finish this part, I am going to be adding a border:
I also wanted to share some spring garden pictures. I have been trying to get pictures of all my spring favorites as they are coming into bloom around the yard and garden. First up are these sweet miniature daffodils:
They look so pretty blooming next to these grape hyacinths - the hyacinth blooms are just starting to open, I love the white edging on each bloom. They are spectacular when they are fully open.
And some daffodils:
This is a lilac bloom just getting started. It is my favorite lilac, it is a white blooming lilac called Madame Lemoine. I only see a few blooms on it so far so it may not be very showy this year.
And finally some rhubarb! This is the first year I will be able to harvest from these plants - they are finally mature enough - I cannot wait to make a pie!
