day at Kew.....and that dress!

Do you remember this dress?
Well...many people, including my son and my husband, have said the embroidery is amazing but the dress colour is dull!!! So l thought about it for a while and now it looks like this.......

This is not quite the correct colour..add a bit more orange to is gorgeous and now we are all happy!xx
Went to kew gardens today and just got so inspired. Firstly Tony helped me record most of the Eucalpytus's, notes and a few leaves from the ground....magic will be produced soon!

And this was not all of them!!!!!
Also some of the plants/flowers/fungi and leaves just sooooooooo inspired me. Here are a few.

Since l first blogged this piece, l now know what the below images are. Read the comments and you will see l have very informed followers..thank you Pattiexx They are apparently  Osage-oranges,which is commonly used as a tree row windbreak in prairie states, which gives it one of its colloquial names, "hedge apple"." 

 All l have to do now is start..drawing/stitching/ painting or printing many ideas!!!!!


  1. Color changed is prettier. Old one has a vintage look, new one is refreshing. Both are good. Nature is full of inspiration, particularly fingus, shape and color are amazing. Love your way of stitching in the previous post.

  2. Your "new" dress color makes me think of saffron and far off lands! Gorgeous!

    Love your eye for nature...I can almost smell the eucalyptus from here
    and you have Osage Oranges in the UK too!

    Happy Weekend to you and yours dear Lynda!

  3. Thanks for saying such nice thingsx
