...orchids...Tulips..not much stitching..

A couple of weeks ago i noticed so many new buds and spike on my orchids, didn't realise i had quite of them and also see almost all are pink colours. These are on the living room and i have a few more in the kitchen. So happy they are really doing great as honestly i forgot to tend to them once so busy at work and came home quite late and if it's dark i won't go and look at them. Hope to buy new ones in colour yellow or white soon. Just notice so many new buds and spike on my orchids


















Last week been to the mainland and along the way finally saw a Tulip fields with the "Queen of the night" tulip, thought at first was black but more on very dark purple. I haven't came across yet a real black colour Tulip. These are the last pictures for these spring flowers as most all flower heads were cut off.

Work on and off with this project and i am undecided about which colour to use for the hair. Thinking of black or DMC #3371. 



 








Love preparing foodies when kids come join us for meals. Not so often nowadays due to their studies and work. 

Hope everyone's having a lovely week.

Lovely orchids and tulips.
I vote for 3371 for the hair, it is less harsh than solid 310.

Your orchids are fabulous, Mylene! I only have one that was given to me when my father died in 2014, but it has bloomed every year since except one. I do treasure it :) Hope June brings you more stitching time and time with your family. It's so hard when they grow up and move away... Enjoy your weekend!
