Latest Asian Screen Chrysanthemums

I had a lisp as a child, sometimes still do if I'm talking too fast and not remembering all the speech therapy lessons about where the tongue needs to be to make a 'th' versus an 's'. So it is with some trepidation that I named a pattern 'Chrysanthemums'!!LOL

But I love the flowing shapes of chrys... oh well you know, and kept 'seeing' them adorning one of the types of lovely screens from our Korean historical dramas.


I'm glad I threw caution to the wind and went ahead with this one, it is fun to stitch though with the intricate screen you will need to check and double check the lines as they go in and around the design.

Winter continues in all its beauty on Gracewood. One of my favorite things is watching the colors of deepening winter twilights. I took a few photos of one of the peaks that catches the setting sun and as you can see the light changes from the white peak against a very blue sky, then it softens to a pink and then to a soft violet as the light is about to go out for the night.

Cold Blue

Deepening Pink

Violet Twilight

Now, back to those hard for me to pronounce flowers :)
