Once upon a time ...

... there was a little girl called Jane.
Jane liked to play lots of different games, but her most favorite thing was to play with sharp needles and brightly coloured threads.

One day while the sun was shining she was playing her favorite game, but sadly on this sunny day things weren't going too well.

She was colouring in the background of her newest picture and had two colours of blue to choose from.

First she tried one, but it was too light, then she tried the other, but it was too dark, next she tried both together but that wasn't right either and Jane was very sad :-(

Jane decided that all the blue should be rubbed out, so she did that and then finished colouring in the other petals, well, all but one because she'd run out of blue so would need to contact the silk fairy to get some more. While waiting for the new colouring in silk to arrive Jane thought she would share some pictures of the lovely flower with her lovely friends in magic cyberspace.

Well, OK, I'll never make a million as an author, but I think the chrysanthemum has turned out quite well. And ... it's taken a lot less time than Treasure Ship, approx 60 hours so far (including the rubbing out!).
