The grass is greener

I love grasses. The restio family in particular. They really are one of the few plants that look cool thrashing their hair in a howling weekend south easter.

I've been toying with the idea of a fabric or paper based design for a while and have finally come up with something that I think has legs (excuse the pun). Here is a section. I still need to play around with colour & material but Jezze's printing tutorial might just be the place to start.

Go Heloise Go! I must say I have similar feelings, but you are further down the road than me. I have found Jesse's tutorial incredibly inspiring and would love to design and print some fabric! I love the look of your design. Pleasing and simple.

I love your design! I can see it working in several colours - though the one you've shown is really beautiful.

High praise indeed, thanks both of you. Now you've really got me chomping at the bit. I'll post the results.

I adore restios too, and I think your design is really lovely. Print it!
