Batik colorwash kits, a few stars, a nature walk..........

I have been working on the cutting of the batik colorwash kits for almost 6 weeks now.  I have a couple thousand batiks so it involved looking through all of them and pulling the very best ones for colorwash, then pressing, cutting with my die cutter, stacking and packaging.  I consider them a starter kit hoping you will add some of your own fabrics to the mix if you purchase a kit.  However I did a mock up and these kits can make a pretty nice colorwash wallhanging on their own.  So.....these aren't packs of just a random assortment of fabrics, they are specifically chosen.  All of my batiks are washed with pure soap, no scent, no detergent before cutting.

 ALL OF THE KITS ARE SOLD.  THANKS EVERYONE!!



Here are the 2 newest star blocks.  I need to move something off my design wall to have room to put these up.



I got one more designed but not sewn.










Here is another view of my wild back garden, near my back lot line.  I have lots of different kinds of hostas planted along the path.  As I get into the area where the tree is there are several clumps of purple coneflowers.









I moved a few steps the the right and took this photo of the edge of the flower bed as you are entering the path.  There are 5 different hostas along the front with Red Penstemon, violets, Spiderwort and probably a few other things filling in the bed.  I like a natural garden.  No single plants with mulch for me.

It is, was, and continues to rain, so I can't even photo in my garden. Love the stars. I made 14 more kaleidoscope blocks yesterday and need more.

We've had rain for days. Within the last 10 minutes, the sun has come out - it is SO fresh and clean and pretty outside right now!

Your natural garden is beautiful! I was out back and noticed that the cora bells that I had left over from planting along the garage are looking wonderful! They are under the top floor deck and must really like it there. I threw down some compost last fall when I transplanted them.

Lots of sorting before you cut for those kits. And the garden, looks like almost every day more and more grow taller, Cone flowers, always bright, and those hostas, lovely.

Very soothing yard shots.

Your backyard looks wonderfully inviting. I like gardens like that. And, of course, I love seeing more stars. I can't wait to see that quit. It's going to be fabulous!
