The drawing session was just before Christmas when there were very few flowers in the garden so we chose as our inspiration potted plants – African violets, hellebores, pansies & primulas. Within an hour of all the ladies having told Viv they couldn’t draw we had a lovely range of ink drawings of the plants. To colour their drawings the group chose shades of blue & pink, the colours of the flower that inspired their name ‘forget me nots’. The ladies scanned their finished artwork into the computer & Viv arranged it into scarf designs which were printed on silk.

The ladies took to the fine stitching needed for the rolled hems to finish the scarves in style.
