ideas like lightning
strike me by surprise, and when
it rains it pours
Joining in with our weekly Photo Challenge: FERN
One of my granddaughters has Fern as her second name and I have been trying to crochet some fern fronds to decorate a birthday card for her. I’m also wondering about using them for appliqué on a knitted jacket.
Here are my trial runs:
I’m thinking they would be even better made in fine crochet cotton, I hope I can find the right colour – the right shade of green can be tricky to find.
Ferns seem to be growing in with my orchids, spores must be in the orchid compost. I used one of the leaves to see what effect it would have on my dyed paper – subtle, but I like it.
More ferns in a doodled mandala I drew when I was learning from Alisa Burke’s Online Mandala Workshop. With my granddaughter’s second name in mind I drew this mandala for her, with fern fronds at the centre.
This frothy fern sits on a stand in my bedroom window
I have no idea of its name but I love its delicate cascade.
Do you have any photos of ferns you would like to enter in our Photo Challenge this week? Just leave a link in the comments.
