Have you ever been on the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland? I very distinctly remember exactly when I realized that the information they were giving on the cruise was silly jokes. My favorite of those jokes is when they take you under the waterfall to see the 'back side' of water. In that vein, I present the back side of my quilt. Just a few more little stitches and my Spring Four Seasons Quilt Swap piece will be ready for the mail. All that is left is to stitch on the label. The nursery rhyme was going through my head all the time I worked on my piece. I certainly enjoyed making this piece and the other seasons before it. I'll reveal the finished front once it is received by my partner.
With apologies to Chris at Cats On My Quilts, I am closing with a backyard photo. With the abundance of rain we had this year, the wildflowers have been glorious this spring. And like the websites for finding fall color in New England there are sites for wildflower viewing updates. The best viewing is now past, but there are still some varieties blooming in my backyard.
This may very well be the most beautiful California Poppy I have ever seen. I had a lot of fun just looking at the petals waver in the breeze while I attempted to capture its essence in digital form. I'll look forward to its seeds bringing more brilliant color to my yard at the same time next year.
