These fabric petals have been gathered and need to be tied off into flower shapes. This isn't one of my favorite things to do so I'm saving it for another day.
A huge mass of tufted flower centers. They look like little icing flowers that would grace the cutest cupcakes. Just a little less than a hundred to go before this step is done.
Where has the coolness of winter gone? The warm, thick, humid air has left me lethargic and uncreative. I have been sitting in front of the televison for the past several days like a lifeless blob hand stitching and watching old episodes of I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, The Beverly Hillbillies and the national news. All I have to show are the above work in progress photos. Hopefully tomorrow will bring new energy and creativity.
