Turkey Rose PC and Clematis Blooming




Oh, How I love my garden blooms. This photo is my clematis in full grandeur. It blooms now and again in the Autumn. This is its third summer for blooming and it has already outgrown the metal garden art decoration pole I bought for it. DH is working on building another one.

The second photo is of a weee Turkey Rose Pincushion I just finished. I put a few beads in the center to make it sparkle. The fabric I used is 100% hand dyed wool.

The top photo is of another flower blooming in my garden and I have forgotten its name. Can you see the Bumble Bee enjoying it sweet nectar??? This is also its third summer and last year for some reason it did not bloom so I am really enjoying its blooms now.

Hi Judy,
You have a lovely blog. Your needlework is beautiful and you have real flowers to match!!! We are in a new home and I don't have many flowers yet. Perhaps by next summer, we'll have some of the landscaping done and I'll have nature's inspirations again!!
Sandi
P.S. My little Turkish Rose Pincushion looks sweet nestled between the flower pics. Your stitching and fabric choices for the project were great!

Hi Judy, I found your blog and thank you for your kind offer of helping me put up my own blog ... I might do that one day (too busy these months) but I enjoy reading your blog and admire your lovely pincushions.
I just finished potting the summer flowers I bought to have by my front door, they make all the difference here.

Hi Judy,
Your garden is so pretty and the little pincushion you made is absolutely adorable.
Thanks for the heads up on the Lynette Anderson pillows. I love her designs too.
