Life 5 - zen garden
I've been investigating shoji blinds, and have begun to put them in place. They are room dividers and privacy screens.You can see a space between the blinds and this will be for a view through an open door - a bit like the photo on the left.
I'm not sure if I'll go with stones or put one of my wobbly topiary trees in the gravel instead. I'm looking forward to doing the machining for the gravel patterns!! It's quite a big space to fill and is a bit like a quilt within a quilt.
I've been a bit slow with stuff lately, but hope to speed up soon and perhaps get it done before the end of October. (There, I've publicly set a date now - cripes) Gardening jobs and related special occasions are at an end now so I have no excuse not to crack on! The other Life Quilt with an Oriental theme will be Still Life with lots of Chinese pots (I've been collecting them and now have enough I think)
Right then, I'm off to eat cupcakes. I'm supposed to be on a low fat diet but can't see good food go to waste especially if it's extraordinarily delicious.
