Happy Monday Folks!!
A visit from me before I get out in the garden, the rain has done wonders for the soil so should be nice and easy to dig. We also have a few docks appearing the the paddocks so they need attention too. Added to that I can burn off the calories I consumed yesterday!!
One of our patients, at work, left a home crafts magazine in the Waiting Room.
I don't buy these so was interested to see what projects it contained. There was a rather nice fabric flower so I skimmed the instructions and came up with this. Whoever she was I do hope she will bring the next issue for me to have a peep at!!
I used a saucer to cut seven circles, then using embroidery thread did running stitch about 1/2" from the edge. My assistant held the fabric while I put a ball of stuffing (NOT sage and onion though!!) in the middle and then pulled the stitching tight. I actually stitched the petals to the centre but I'm sure a hot glue gun would work just as well. The stem is a chop stick covered in ribbon. The flower pot actually contains a citronella candle so for "demonstration purposes" I stuck the chop stick into it!! Ta dah!!
Ooh...playing along here
Anything But A Card - Spring Forward
Cheerio for now.
Thanks for sharing your day with me!!
