WOW: WIPs On Wednesday Once More

WOW, it is Wednesday again and time for WOW, Wips on Wednesdays by Esther Aliu.

For those eagerly awaiting progress on Herbularius, here is where I am at as of this morning:

No enormous progress, but I'm having to get used to stitching Châtelaines again and I've had frequent visits from the froggies.




This afternoon I prepared the applique pieces for the course I will be teaching in October and November. A block designed by Edita Sytar. Jacqueline of Samsara Quilting and I chose very pretty batiks for this project:





We've had very wet weather again today, which resulted in these beautiful macro pictures which I took only minutes ago. When I came back from doing the shopping, I noticed these water droplets on the clover flowers and leaves by our front door. I can't remember what these flowers are called. The leaves look like clover leaves and they must bring lots of luck, because all the leaves have four petals:











Isn't nature truly beautiful?


Those of you eagerly awaiting progress pictures of my Heart's Desire will have to be patient a little longer. We were away for four days and since we went camping (well, 'glamping' really) I didn't dare do any stitching.


Thanks for all your lovely comments, and welcome to my new followers.

I like your bunny block. Glamping seems like it would be fun to do. A bathtub right where you sleep.

Great start of Herbularius! The bunny is cute and the fabrics very well chosen.

Het konijntje ziet er lief uit, en de kleuren zijn prachtig bij elkaar.
De plant en bloemen die je op de foto heb staan, staan ook bij het kinderdagverblijf waar ik werk en op de pakjes met staat klavertje 4.
Ik denk dat er nog wel een andere naam ook voor is maar die komt niet zo inme op.

Groetjes Yvon.

What great pictures! I think nature is the most beautiful of all things. So inspiring. Thank you for posting those.

Your bunny block is super cute!

But it's your handwork that has really got me. Such work, it's stunning!

I agree with Esther your handwork is a real art. I think nature looks its best after the rain, those raindrops are dreamy. Little bunny looks so cute, are you hand stitching or machine???? I always enjoy your blog. Cheers Glenda
