Colour!

I really wish I could translate the wonderful rich colour of this sunflower into fabric!
I did a tiny little bit on my TIF piece today, but managed to spend most of the day celebrating my birthday which was LAST month! Not everybody can stretch the day out into a full month. Two separate friends gave me presents today so I feel pretty lucky at the moment!

What a rich deep colour---sigh...just the same as some of the rocks we saw today in Horseshoe Canyon---mysterious and entrancing.
