Friday’s Favorites: Daffodils

ribbonwork daffodilFlowers are one of my favorite things to make. Daffodils however are not really my favorite flower, but they are my friend Phred’s favorite, and he is my one of my favorites.

ribbonwork daffodilsMy friend and his life partner Tom, are getting married this weekend, and he asked if I would be his flower girl, just because I could make the flowers! LOL. So it started with four flowers (one for he and his partner, my husband and me), and now we are up to 16 people and you guessed it 16 flowers.

My husband will be uniting the couple, Phred’s sister and friend will be the matron’s of honor, my daughter and her friend will be the “bubble girls” (blowing bubbles instead of throwing rice), and I will also pitch in as the photographer (because I have the camera).

Happy Life to you my friends!

With Love, ~Christen

 

Glance from my work table

work tableWell I have been busy with small projects, finishing up pieces that were set aside so that I could finish other projects. This is the piece that I am currently working on.

As I work, I often pull out finished pieces, so that I can remind myself how I worked out colors, or stitches on other projects. So I have lined the back of my work table with some of the smaller works that I have finished.

Happy Stitching to all, ~Christen
