THE BLUE TREE

The challenge at "Take a Word" this week is to make something with the colour blue.


Every so often I make something with textiles.  I belong to five textile groups, three of which have regular exhibitions, a good enough incentive to switch from paper to fabric, if only for a short while.

So take a textile walk today,

a walk along the path




past the meadow




to see the pretty blue flowers




then through the forest




to see the Blue Tree.




I hope you have enjoyed your textile journey, just for a change.

It was a wonderful trip over your nicely arranged path, along the meadow (it could have needed some cutting, though ;-) ), to see your blue flowers planted with love, through the winter wonderland... eh winter wonderforest... to find at least a beautiful blue tree.

A real wonderworld indeed!
