Paisley



This weeks theme for Illustration Friday is Paisley. I'm not sure where this idea came from but I quite like it! We've got visitors over at the moment and day trips and football (!) have sort of got in the way of creating. But I did get round to making something...



I don't know if anyone has come across these fruits before. My friend gave me heaps of them from his garden and told me to make something tasty so after some research I discovered they are called Phsyalis Alkekengi, Chinese Lantern or Groundcherries and they are delicious raw or baked in a crumble, which is what I did. I think they are such lovely things.

  8. Hey Shelby! Love the paisley clad kitten with the yarn. Nice design and detail. I've seen those Chineese lantern things before.... I didn't know they were edible.
