Without much adoo.......a Birthday Card


These magnificent pinks, reds, oranges and browns
depict the autumnal colours surrounding us in our garden
here at home
 in Australia
at present.
and I decided to incorporate these beautiful

printed silks and taffeta into a
Birthday Card for one of the women in our small patchwork group that meet in my home once a week.


Aren't the colours just so amazingly rich
next to the Ornamental Grape Vine
leaves!

Hope you are all having a very creative week!
Love, Suzy......xxx

  9. A lucky friend indeed. You would be swooning at the 30 year old rose bush covered with a thousand blooms of palest pink outside my window here in California. I thought of you the minute I saw it. xox Corrine

  11. Oh, yes, that is a gorgeous card anyone would be thrilled to receive! You've captured the leaf colours perfectly, then set them against the soft tones of the laces. It's a wonderful mix of colours, materials and textures.
