Therapy in Flowers

I needed a break from the mechanics of building my “Flowers in the Wind” fabric art. I also needed something new to cheer myself up.

Proof fabric for Red & Purple Flowers Tropical Flowers surface design

What better therapy than using a tried and true pattern for a cool, cotton summer blouse? What more fun than to see my own surface designs come together in a cheerful addition to my wardrobe?

The back is Tropical Heliconia Flowers.

Since I print my proofs on a “fill-a-yard” I never have enough of one design to make a whole shirt. So, necessity being the mother of invention, I improvised. The front is one design, the back another. The sleeves are a third and fourth: large and small Jungle Leaves! It’s a one-of-a-kind!

I shall make a debut with it on our river drive tomorrow. I may not quite blend in to the bosque greenery, but I’ll be in the same spirit of growth and vibrant life!


Happily retired! Renewing my interests in music and art. Hoping to improve my skills in all creative areas.
