Colours

I did some experimenting last night with colours and so far so good. I think it has a nice summery feel to it. Now I am up to the tricky bit - sewing it to the background. Lucky someone is ahead of me and I have a few tips.

I have some new favourite giraffe fabric - Amy Butler Daisy Chain.
