No Time to Stop and Smell the Roses

It is amazing how fast time goes by when you're busy almost every minute of the day. Please accept my apology for being so scarce lately. I've decided to stay away from the computer as much as possible in order to build my inventory.

While waiting for my glue gun to heat up, I decided to try my hand at making a satin flower. I'm sure that you've seen these before as they seem to be all the rage lately. It was a lot of fun to make, but I clearly need more practice. I kept catching the fabric on fire as I formed the petals. I guess it will take some time to learn just how far away from the flame the fabric needs be held.


I'm so ecstatic that Fall is now upon us even though it will probably remain pretty warm over here until sometime in November. Thank goodness for air conditioning or I would be a total slug. I don't function very well when I'm uncomfortably hot.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Aloha!

Yes, indeed I have seen these & featured something somewhat similar on my blog as well. They are really cute and the larger ones are really fantastic. Check out this link for inspiration & check out my blog's new design while you're there... Tell me what you think too :)

Great project Lettie. I think I will stay away from flaming flowers, I'd probably burn the house down LOL!

I love how casually you slipped in the petals-on-fire mention. Too funny! The flower is beautiful!
