My friend, Sarah, is an amazing photographer. Many of you know this already. Her use of light is wonderful and when paired with her polaroid, it's magical. I was very excited when she decided to sell some of her prints. I was over the moon when I found that they were all of ranunculus.
I had a hard time choosing because they are all so beautiful. In the end, I went with the one above. It arrived yesterday and I love it. It's 8 x 10 and I love how it looks like a gigantic polaroid. Today, I'm off to find a frame - I am thinking simple and white so the photo will really shine. Stop by Sarah's shop and see the rest of them. I bet you have a hard time choosing too.
And because I have been thinking about Sarah, I finally made my square for her month of the Virtual Quilting Bee. Sarah sent the two darker solids and asked that we make something with texture. I struggled with this assignment, mostly because both of my original ideas were used by other people in the VQB. But in the end, I went with something I know we both adore: ranunculus.
There is a high possibility that Sarah will not like this one bit. She is not a ruffly kind of girl and I know that. But she does like flowers and I had the idea so I made it. I like it, but if she doesn't, that is fine. I have lots of fabric left over.
