I found this quite challenging, as this is a very broad subject, but, every time I thought about the word I kept coming up with green fields and a river. It is my enduring thought when I here the word. I love the great outdoors, and fresh air, the smell of new mown grass.
I painted the background with fabric paint rather than piecing dyed fabric, as this gave me the flow of river that I wanted. I then quilted the fabric, so that it added perspective and finally adding poppies and small riverside flowers with French knots.
