More Inspiration from Nature

Lichen on the farm gate
I like to get inspiration from nature.  I'm not a clever enough artist or designer to have any great success, but there is a buzz when it comes close.

Decided to have a go at a small ruffle
The gate is richer in browns and blue greys than appears in the first photo, so I chose a colour rich yarn for my first shot. 

The instructions attached to my swatch
Deeper ruffle

Lichen seen on Hawthorn - now there's a challenge
