This is the second pillow I finished recently. I love the red fabric. It has such a rich hue. I do not know where the name came from. The vertical stripes on the front panel remind me of vegetation, but the back panel has horizontal orientation. I suppose I could think of growing sideways that happens to lot of us with aging... or not.
Overwhelmed by events, finally I have completed this design. I am getting adjusted to having less time sewing, not painting, but gardening instead and then recupperating my sore body. The weather is spectacular and so I love being outdoors.
