how lucky I am that green is a color I love...

the garden has so many wonderful greens...

click on the images....


a small garden but so very satisfying

lettuce, sweet potato plant & one little lemon squash

the leaves on this scarf have gone from gold to green to a berry color...


I couldn't resist this green and white yarn but I'm removing all the sequins scattered throughout...

it's taking longer than I expected to remove all the sequins
and last time I showed you a Korean paper making technique that I was experimenting with called Joomchi. I started embellishing the paper with a scrim backing, free motion embroidery with lace bits, etc. and then started hand embroidering. the paper is so fragile that I had to stop. I'll show you the finished piece next time. I did order the book (Joomchi and Beyond) and hopefully I'll learn the proper technique.

felted paper, scrim, fme, lace bits & hand embroidery
enjoy every minute of every day. see you next time.

Ahhhh, lush greens Deanna !
That wil be a wonderful shawl with the knitted leaves.
Wonderful your "Karen-piece" , is it white like Karen's or is it this lovely creamy colour of the photo ?

Joomchi ! wonderful technique : my edmired felting friend Fiona Duthie from Canada, was also inspired by it and made wonderful layered felted items !!!!!!

wonderful post Deanna, your garden does indeed look green and very pretty, I guess it was thankful for the rain you had. The knitted piece is very lovely, I love the colours, it is so rich and as for your paper....you push and push and make it work every time.

Petite gardens are the best. Less weeding, watering, and the joy of having your own harvest. The scarf is beautiful and the paper is fantastic! I have been ogling the book trying to make up my mind. I think you have tipped the scales. :) Have a wonderful weekend and keep cool.

Hi Deanna...Simply love your stitching on joomchi...so textural and organic.
Removing sequins....I too have done that...way too much bling!

Debbie said...

Love your Joomchi piece, exquisite

Lovely! Your garden is adorable! I have two containers of tomatoes and they are growing bigger by the day! ;-) Also have a lot of herbs, which I use a LOT. Am toying with the idea of cukes, but haven't planted them yet.
Love your scarf!…..and your embroidery is amazing, as always!

Have a fabulous week!

xxoo

your paper & lace on scrim is stunning work!
but re taking the sequins off that yarn... good luck! I bought a finely woven indigo wool cloth that had random silver threads running through it which I tried to take out... worked about 2 inches in an hour before the tedium set in & dropped it off at the thrift shop for someone to enjoy the sparkle !

I enjoyed your post this week. Your garden is wonderful! Isn't green a calming color. God choose the best one. I have been busy working in my garden too. Takes me a while because
of my limitations, but I enjoy the tinkering. Experimenting with new ways is always fun for me. Your work is lovely. Have a good week!

I'm here reveling in your garden,your works,your spirit. Thank you for the wise encouragement in your comment on my 'new Computer' post. How it made me feel at ease! Still limited but able to do a few things. More will come.
