Subtle as a brick
Awww, I love you bloggers! When I moan about having no comments, you front up and post some. Thank you, sweeties. Margaret, as far as not taking photos while looking at the sun - I learned that back in the old pre-digital days, so maybe it no longer counts. Personally, I like the effect of the sun in my photos.
Happy birthday Hattie! Glad you like the scarf.
You may be wondering what that all has to do with the post heading. Nothing. Nothing at all. That bit is coming.
I am planning to do some work based on New Zealand designs, as interpreted by moi. (It will NOT contain sheep. Just because we have 40 million sheep and only 4 million people doesn't mean our lives are dominated by sheep. though apparently tourists love the sheep thing.....)
Now, we Kiwis are not known for our subtlety. Not in any way. As far as our colours go, our creations are often thought of in terms of brights, due to our harsh light and excess of ultraviolet.
However, my planned work is of a more subtle nature. Just to show you we CAN do it. Here's some blended fabric that I made today which will form the background. I actually set out to do more browns but the other colours snuck in.
