Secret Garden (So Far, So Good)

Mark has a rare day off (until job #2 at 5:30) and has walked with Miss A. to our neighborhood branch of the P-town public library to get the next Harry Potter book. I think they're on 5--here's where I confess they lost me sometime during the second book. Am I the only human being on earth immune to this phenomenon? Anyhow, I thought I'd take a minute to share my secret-garden progress with you.
I'll be adding Jani shortly--the little girl who loves this garden--and bunches and bunches of camellias in shades of pink. Wait for it!
Meanwhile, I haven't finished my Mimi doll yet, but here's a bit of progress!

Harry Potter is not my cup of tea either. I tried to make friends with him, but we don't speak the same language. Your beautiful start to the Secret Garden, though, I can hear it talking loud and clear. LOVE it.

You are not alone. I have not read one book or seen any complete movies. It is a obsession I do not understand. I love all those greens!

Amber Liddle said...

I love the HP series, my husband always makes fun of me when I reread one :)

I love the start to the secret garden, can't wait to see the rest!

Kelly said...

your work is all just so wonderful! can't wait to see mimi

Cindy said...

I found your blog over the summer. Kept coming back because I love seeing all your felt creations!

Anyhoo, just wanted to say that I feel the same way about Harry Potter. Read the first book and just didn't feel compelled to keep going. Same thing for the Twilight books.

Corinne said...

so far so great :)
I haven't read any HP books but I am guessing I'll have to crack one someday with Peter or Adam. Personally, I'm more of a 'Series of Unfortunate Events' gal.

Naomi said...

Wow that looks so great. When I grow up I want to sew felt like you!

Lorena said...

it looks absolutely beautiful so far! your work is incredibly amazing!!

Angela said...

I have never read a Harry Potter book. I am a little embarrassed to admit "Twilight" has kept me up very late the last few evenings though.

I love the little cobblestones on the path...can't wait to see more.

The skirt! Ooo, so luscious are the colours.

Kate said...

The garden looks cute!

Now, I do own the entire series (I'm missing the two mini-textbooks) on book and DVD, but I'm so over going to the theatre to see the movies in the theatre.

Now, the one phenomenon I don't understand is the Twilight saga. I've read the books but there's no way I'm seeing the movies. I just don't get it. Ditto with The Series of Unfortunate Events. I read the first one and was just so depressed I didn't want to read anymore!

Now, if one is talking about His Dark Materials, that is a hard-core obsession for me.

Wow, I love love love the secret garden, especially that bright green--so brave! It's perfect, and it will be even better with the flowers.

I haven't read one.single.word of HP--and I was a 7th grade language arts teacher before my son was born!

I love the look of your secret garden, can't wait to see the finished article!
I've got to say I've never read a Harry Potter book... that type of book isn't really my cup of tea, so I guess that makes two of us?! x

Lemoncello said...

Oh, that garden is so pretty ^^!

Elissa said...

kz said...

I haven't read them either, so not my thing... I can't seem to get interested in it. I love the garden though! :)

Vixanne said...

Have to own up to being a HP fan, but I was majorley encouraged by my mum who is older and should know better ;)

Love love love secret garden. Looking good, and really lively with those greens!
