Monday......Sunflower Progress Report

Here we go with another Monday

progress report on the Sunflower...

I am curve piecing my way 

along the top of the flower.

The blue background gets darker 

along the top edge...

This distant image gives you some perspective

of just how big this flower really is...

At this point all of the petals are stitched in place.

I am beginning the green leaves 

along the top left side...

5:00....I called it a day

Just a little corner left to piece.

Here's a look at real flowers

growing in the back yard this evening:

Dinner Plate Dahlias...

Always a favorite of mine...

Black Eyed Suzy

This little green fly loves the flowers...

The grape arbor in the back yard 

is putting on a show!

We know autumn has arrived when the 

grape leaves turn gorgeous shades of red...

I tasted a few of the grapes...

they are almost ready,

maybe another week or so.

We have 12 different varieties of table grapes

growing on the arbor...

Wishing you a colorful Autumn!
