Green Ginkgo and Fabric

Finally back in town and a little caught up on “work.”  It has been very hot and the outdoors around here has all brown.  We finally had a few random thunderstorms and a little green has come back to the plant life.  My ginkgo tree has had some rough times this year, early warm up in the spring followed by a late hard frost left all the new growth, dead, then all this hot dry summer.  It is looking beautiful this week. I love all the variety of leaf shapes. I will miss it when we move.

It was also an inspiration for my green inches swap hosted by Melissa.  Dear SA thought I was a little crazy when I showed him the tiny little pieces.  I love all the texture and it was just what I needed to help jump start the creative juices to continue on with the fall collections.

    Thanks, So much. I had to make them is such a rush, because I am moving
    and had to take my studio apart. Sometimes too much thought and planning
    can bring different results.
