Biltmore in bloom...



Flowers are one of my absolute favorite things to photograph. Last weekend, I spent a day at Biltmore Estate where the gardens are green and many things are in bloom, including the azaleas...



A lovely spot to sit in the conservatory...



The palm house was warm and full of gorgeous plants...


The gardens green and lovely...



Gorgeous wisteria...


And the lovely mountain view...



Wishing all of you a lovely day...

A stripe favorite...


My Pretty Lavender Stripes pattern is suddenly popular and Spoonflower has it featured on its Latest Favorites page. It’s the second design of mine in a week to be featured there, which is pretty cool considering how many thousands of designs are available on Spoonflower.


Below is the collection of fabrics Pretty Lavender Stripes belongs to ~ they all coordinate nicely together.

Finding favor: Pink Roses...



My Pink Roses pattern found its way to Spoonflower’s Latest Favorites page yesterday, which is always cool. I captured a screen shot of some of the others also chosen, which you can see below. It’s interesting to see what captures people's fancy.
I created this pattern a couple of years ago from a photograph I took. I cropped in on the rose, added a painting effect, and then changed the colors, edges, etc.




I created this pattern in two colors - the dark pink and purple of Pink Roses and another version in pale pinks, which I named Pale Pink Roses. You can see that version below ~ it pairs really nice with one of my stripe patterns. You can find these and other patterns on Spoonflower.



Wishing everyone a lovely day...
