I know I said that I had decided not to pull out my weaving any more but I have changed my mind; a lady's prerogative. My mentor had a look at my work and thought my Darwin piece was a bit flat due to not varying the colours I used. I took her advice and pulled it out , most of it and redid it. As you can see in the photos, the 2nd version looks a lot better. My big tapestry is taking ages because I am taking my time. By the end of this week, I would like to be 1/3 of the way through. I have not done any weaving for 10 days due to upheavals in my life, but I should have a relatively clear run for the next little while. Despite the time I am taking, I am enjoying it. Next time I have to design a tapestry I will employ the KISS strategy.

|Here you can see a touch of red in the leaves of the rose called whisky/brandy which has strong orange flowers.|
I think I am a bit addicted to purple; my violets are still flowering.
