New Flowers

I needed a break from the sewing machine yesterday.  AND with an eye toward the number s-l-o-w-l-y  c-r-e-e-p-i-n-g towards 100.  I made this lovely.
Yep, it will be one of the giveaway prizes when we hit 100.  BTW you can find the instructions here.  And see the first one here and the next three here.

I also worked on this paper flower.
I changed the petal shape, which I like.  I used two tone paper, which I like.  However, I used card stock and it was too heavy/thick.  It just didn't have the 'give' that the felt has. I would like to try one with regular paper, and I would love to find a two-tone felt. 

As for the other goings on around here.  WD went back to school today.  E is home, probably (hopefully) going back tomorrow.  And I will sit myself back in front of the sewing machine - After I bleach and Lysol every surface in the house.

Hope you have a great day, thanks for reading.

That is so cute, Rachel! It looks like it's pretty complicated to make! I haven't tried many flowers yet.

Oh I especially like the felt flower. It would be a great embellishment for a knitted/crocheted hat.
