I have not been blogging as much as I would like. Do you remember me telling you how busy this month is for me? On top of everything, we are currently on a trip. We are in Pennsylvania with the main destination being Gettysburg Battlefield. Unfortunately, the government shutdown interfered, but more about that in another post. This morning we went to the Hershey Gardens in Hershey, PA, and I took along Dresden Doilies and asked if it would be alright to photograph it in the garden and they said yes. So, without any further ado, here are some of the results. Warning: lots of photos to follow. I would love to know which one you like best!
With some Daisies
Under a Tree
On a Stone Bridge
In Front of an Arbor
In the Giant Watering Can. Doesn't it look miniature?
As a Fall Backdrop
With an Urn
Now for some close ups. The quilting was done by Valorie, the Pumpkin Patch Quilter. She did a beautiful job and was able to fit it in in time for our quilt show in less than two weeks, now!
She stitched the Dresden Plates in the ditch and McTavished the background. The large and medium centers have a feather/flower quilted in them and the small centers are empty so they "puff."
It was a gorgeous day to be in the gardens, and the light was great. It was cloudy, so there wasn't any harsh shadows from direct sunlight.
I hope you all are having a great day, too!
PS: I think my favorite is the one with the urn. If you look at it closely, you can just make out my husbands legs on either side of the urn.
