Sunflowers and Watermelons

Watermelon and sunflowers - what could be more symbolic of summer. I found the free pattern (by Alice Fleury for Wilma's Wimzees) for these ornies or bowl fillers online and decided to tackle them a few weeks ago. They came out pretty good and they look perfect in my old bowl, sitting on my new summer runner on my coffee table don't you think?
UPDATE: link to free pattern - sunflowers and watermelon slices

My next project~ in between more gardening and spring cleaning~ is much more of a challenge. My friend Kathy made the gorgeous wool penny rug pictured under What's In The Works over on the left side. She was very kind to share the pattern with me so I am going to make one as well. I have done pillows and smaller penny rugs so I know what I am doing - the challenge is in finishing it. I tend to like things I can whip up quickly! Wish me luck!

Until next time - hugs, Linda
