As I mentioned before, that house is 81 stitches wide! I am changing most of the colors in the big plant on the left. The chart calls for NPI silks. They are beautiful but have gotten very expensive. I did not like the DMC equivalents at all. So I'm going on my own. The main orange that I am using is Gingersnap by Gentle Arts. I am building all the other colors around that one. The greens are fine so far. The house is Onyx by WDW. All the little stars are done in the colors suggested on the chart.
I love this dainty little iris. I can't get any more of these as the nursery where I bought it has gone out of business.
A few years ago I saw this iris root at the local Fred Meyers( kind of like a Walmart). I bought it for 50% off. This is three years later. I finally saw these lovely blooms. Patience payed off!
This beauty is my favorite. Right now it has nine blooms with still more buds to come.
I hope you all have a terrific week-end! We are suppose to cool down and get some rain. That is good news! Thanks for joining me today.
