Fabric book page

This is the page I did for Sarah.
Her book theme is "A woman's job is never done". Well, taking care of the garden is one of my many jobs. I usually enjoy it. But last year, the gods were against me. Spring was awful, July was too hot, August was too rainy... DH kept saying: "The garden is beautiful, it looks like wilderness... I love it..."
Yes, but now, my garden is a mess... Up to now, we haven't had any frost. And the weeds are thriving...

Here are two details of the work:

I totally agree with all the other comments, this is brilliant Francoise. And what a great interpretation of Sarahs title.

I say also, brilliant! It is like showing the beauty of an November landscape in Vermont to someone who has no appreciation for it.
