I am working on drum shades for a special order this week using recent patterns in new colourways.  Between the downpours I have captured a few of my favourite plants in flower which have inspired the colour combinations.  First, a wonderful Hollyhock I grew from seeds sent to me by an old neighbour of ours back in Reigate, Surrey about 12 years ago…

Next a lovely Hydrangea I grow in a tub to keep it pink…

… and its resulting stitched panel which will be made into a drum shade.
