Whew - thanks for the run on Dirty Threads. I've packed up the orders and will get them to the post office in a while.

This lot here is fresh. I'm struggling to get the range of greens I want for Night Gardener. Working outside in full sun and high humidity has a way of stupefying me. If I put up the umbrella (now dead) or pitch a new tent, I can't get the truth of the colors to my brain, so there's a lot more serendipity than color science. Still not happy, although some interesting things have hatched. These will go into inventory soon.


  1. A new color way for you. A new you???
    And it's fun to watch you create thread as you do your own work--The Night Gardener?
    I see the fuchsia is not present and messing things up. Mixing green with paint is also a bit tricky.
    The right blue the right yellow. I love mixing yellow green- lime or chartreuse.
    And I love indigo blue.

  2. Night greens are tricky. Bright enough to be seen, dark enough to not be murky. Indigo will figure in. And the green/gold of fireflies. there will be dark colors, even fuschia, in the flower beds.

  3. love those tawny blues


Tell me everything!

I love Fridays

It's been a day of lessons and indulgence. I don't have to work tonight. After a busy morning and a solid nap, I came back to ...

Play it again Sam.
