I got these yellow flowers from this lovely local shop on the weekend. They're a bit like protea but smell strongly of manuka honey. No-one knows what they're called- do you? (Please leave a comment if so!) They're greatly cheering up the kitchen windowsill, making the dishes a nicer job to complete.
Their golden yellowness inspired a bit of fabric printing. I carved the drop shape from rubber, and used yellow ink to stamp it onto linen. I'm thinking of sewing the linen up into pillowcases. Partly because I've always wanted yellow bedding, and partly because I thought a blog post about them could be called 'raindrops keep falling on my bed', no wait... 'tears on my pillow...' Okay, I'll stop now.
Happy new week to you!
