My d’Histoire Naturelle: Herbarium
I am using the Stone Washed Herbarium colorway to make my blanket. The square we made in part 1 turned into an octagon crawling with bugs in part 2, and in part 3 we made a circle decorated with leaves. Then came part 4 with minerals and lace, and now we stampede into part 5 with elephants and other lovely details. You have to admit, those elephants are just so clever.
I enjoyed making this part, there is a calm balance to repeats in the border. The arcades remind me of interesting buildings I once visited, feels like a lifetime ago. The book I finished a few weeks ago already, it is such a page turner.
Hard to believe that there is only one part left. Two weeks from now we complete d’Histoire Naturelle.
