February BJP


February is a month of contrasts here on the coast. We have many wet, windy days and then a day or two of lovely sunshine and warmth with hardly any wind at all. A few of the spring flowers may be in bloom...our daffodils and the neighbors earliest rhodedendron, for example, but mostly the field grasses are sienna and ochre colored. So for this month's bjp I've found some lovely muted browns in the cotton batik fabric as well as a contrasting blue (for our occasional blue skies) with muted green and purple to remind us how close spring is now.
I've also posted a photo of our bridge for this months header.

Nice color combination, Bobbi. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Like the new picture too.

I just love how you are using several sizes of your hand to shadow the piece. These colors are great.

Sounds like your February weather is much like our March weather normally is in No. Indiana.

Your bridge is gorgeous. I'm so glad to get a chance to see it. And I think brown is a great backdrop for beauty. Brown is underrated. Ever see a cardinal in the winter brownscape...it's wonderful. And I know your next hand will be too...
