Scrolls


I worked on all the Deep Blue Sea scrolls on my Fairies Garden. I thought I had them all done, but, of course, after looking at my picture....I see there is one that is missing a little bit of its scrolls.

I'll finish those little bits and move onto another color within the scrolls...probably the Cormorant Gaze. OK - Cormorant?? Now that's a word I have never heard. So, curiosity got the better of me and I went and looked it up. Believe it or not, it is a species of bird. Now I feel better. :) It makes you wonder where the thread designers go looking for new color names, doesn't it?

Well, that's a new word for me too! And you're right, where do they come up with these names. You're making such great progress on this. I really can't wait to see more of it. I think it's one of Martina's prettiest designs.

Beautiful work. I love the colors in this.

I really never thought it would be a bird! Cormorant; I thought perhaps some kind of plant...
The scrolls look like a lot of work to me, but the result is beautiful.

Many congrats on your new progress ,Michele, that is really gorgeous .

About the " cormorants " , they are seabirds of our country : here, there are a lot of cormorants on our beachs and sometimes they also come into our gardens to eat the little insects.
They aren't littles seabirds : they are enough tall and they are white and black grey!!
