Balmain Chartreuse Bounty

Yesterday I returned to Balmain, my old neighbourhood in Sydney. It was a beautiful autumn day and in the leafy streets, I visited Calico & Ivy and came away with a little chartreuse (the fabric paint was bought elsewhere):
My husband had put in a request for some ground bay leaves which also have a tinge of chartreuse:
Whilst in the neighbourhood, I visited Belle Fleur to buy some some chocolate for the Australian launch of the BOOK at pompom rouge on 25 March, and they had a chocolate sculpture of cocoa beans with a touch of chartreuse too:
PS: I also bought some cheese from our favourite Italian deli but that will be eaten well before it turns chartreuse.

Can't wait for my 12X12 to arrive from Amazon. Also have excited my year 10 textiles students with this challenge

That cocoa bean sculpture reminds me of Karen's Chocolate piece with the six colorful beans!

Yes, I wished I had a copy of the book in my handbag to show the proprietors.
