Flower # 4 Riet's flower

Flower # 4 Riet's flower

While Riet was visiting again this year from The Netherlands, she was playing with the hand dyed thread of yarnplayer (Marilee Rockley) that is called "Garden Afternoon" and she was making the stained glass jewelry from Marilee's new book. Riet gifted me with a skein of the yarn which I just had to add to my Garden of Friends. I played awhile with using just the thread but it really needed the black accent to make it stand out. I used the purple cent to keep a little continuity with the other flower colors but really think that an all black flower in the center would have looked good too. It is really fun to play with the colors to see how they look. I was just looking at how Martha Esses pattern is doing. She is doing hers like Karey just adding one small flower at a time. Her colors really catch my eye...just like different colors of flowers in a flower garden might do. hummmmmmm


  1. I'm very fascinated by the way you are doing this, with the yellow borders. And I really like the symmetry of this particular floral group. The black rings look great, and the center flower in purple does indeed complement the other flower sections.

    This must take a lot of concentration with all those joins, but it is very eye-appealing, and a good way to use up thread! It could get quite large!

  2. Hi Pam..
    didn't know how else to get hold of you! I got the earrings you sent me from Sue. Thanks so much for sending them along to me. They are so cute, and I love the eyes!
    I also wanted to say that I love your "Patrick" on your blog.. he is so funny. I would never have thought of making him..heehee.
    Anyway, thanks again.
