april 09




This is my April piece. I felted the tulip onto some handdyed fabric. Its green but it shows blue. I love tulips and wait all winter for them. Here in St.paul, Mn they were very welcome to my eyes. we have not had a great spring. Its been cold, and not as wet as we'd like. We are already down on our moisture. The advantage of the cool though is the tulips have lasted so long. I am feeling excited to spend my summer in my garden. Julie

oooh very nice Julie! I really like the tulip! I know how you feel over in St Paul - we've had much the same weather here in northern Wisconsin!
very nice page for April.

Lovely piece...even just the tiniest bit of garden brings serenity.

Another really great piece, Julie!!! Did you felt the wool onto the fabric by hand needling it? How long did that take? I love the colors of this one and the wetness and the bright simlicity of the tulip. Some year you and Jon have to head out here for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.... You'd get QUITE the tulip fix! Yay!!! Robin A.

Julie this piece makes me happy to view it...like you, we've had a bit of a dreary Spring. I'm glad you have tulips...the deer ate all of mine...evidently they were waiting for them too!!!

Loved that you added the felting -- it added a nice dimension to the piece.

Here's to sunny days and beautiful flowers!
