When I looked at the picture, I immediately thought it was a field of lavender -- before I read the description.

Das gefällt mir sehr, es sind so "feine" Farben, die wunderbar harmonisieren. Es ist Dir wirklich gut gelungen.

This looks very much like I would imagine your area looks.
I can hear a kookaburra laughing as I type this! He is in the tree outside the door.

What a great use of that color scheme. I see so many TIF people not liking it. They should see what you've done - they'd change their minds pretty quickly.

Barbara Cheeseman said...

You have certainly been successful with a rather challenging colour scheme, and its a very soothing image! You do stitch some lovely things! - from 'embroideryoverlaps'
