In the Potting Shed



Wednesday again and time to tend my flower garden!  The list of gardeners just keeps growing and we are now up to 52 members.  Welcome to One Flower Wednesday, Marion, Marcia, Anne-Mette, Tree, Anette, Carolyn, Elin, Dawn, Martine and Tina.

Out of the rain and in the potting shed, is where you will find me.  Today I hope to prep a bunch of hexagons and as I prep, I will string them together in little bundles, each containing enough to make one flower.  Then, during afternoon tea, I will bring a beautiful flower to life.  Later, as I take my evening stroll, maybe I will get lucky and see you in the garden.

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.

What a beautiful flowers these will be!!! Love the fabric and colours you use!! 52 already!! I have them all lined up on my side-bar and that takes up quite a length, do you have any suggestion on how to may a bunch of them (after one another with komma's in between) have no idea how to do that, silly me hey hihi! Happy sewing, hugs, Daniëlle

I love the photo! And really...I should make one flower every Wednesday...think you've motivated me to add something to my list today!

Jan said...

This really is a great photo. I also really like your prints. It's fun to see everyone's flowers, but also with this time of year it's fun to see everyone's gardens too. :)

great fabric selection karen.

Deb said...

If I didn't have so many other projects going on, I would love to join you. Maybe later - but I'll enjoy watching your progress. Those are beautiful fabrics.

Valentina said...

The picture says it all, Karen! You, my friend, have green thumbs!
:)
I love your hexies and how you prepare them... I don't think we ever thought this would turn into such a party!

Funoldhag said...

Love the picture, Karen. I am guessing you have some tomatoes started - and see that someone else thinks so, also. The hexies are so pretty. You have certainly inspired many to come garden with you and it will be fun to see all the different flowers. Really cool here the last few days, but should be able to think about planting some containers in a couple of weeks! :-) Carol

Very nice picture, and a good comment, it is raining here all over the day, it is good for my flowers, not so good for my mind....

greetings, jeannet

Sue-Anne said...

Glad to see you can work in the potting shed when it is raining outside! They look gorgeous.

Lovely Picture & beautiful fabrics.
BTW: I LOVE your teapot picture too!

Karen, thank you for going through all that trouble to comment on my tiny little lonesome flower. I do not know why you have been unable to comment on the blog itself, but maybe the blog was not completely ready-to-go when you entered. Anyway, I have placed your comment under my **bloemetje** and it works. Thanks again! All the best, Tineke

Narelle said...

Love your fabrics!
Clever idea to string the petals together before they become a flower.

Satu said...

Dear Karen,
It's nice that there is so many blooming gardens around the world! In my garden two more flowers - instead of one - are blooming in this week... maybe because of the warm weather;) I'll report on next week. And thank you SO MUCH of your very informative pages with links and all!

Sheila said...

Karen , a wonderful post , love your fabrics and what a great idea to string them together until they are ready to bloom . Isn't it amazing how the number of gardeners just keep growing , it just shows what a great gardener you are to have inspired all of us . Thanks also for the great information page.

Hi Karen,

Love you flowers, beautiful fabrics. But I also love your POTC. Is it also make with paper?
Here in Holland is at least some sunshine, so the flowers will grow. But that's for wednesday. Have a nice day.
