One of the first projects we completed while Libby was home was a batch of sunflowers. We even got Mikey in on the fun. (Uncle Mark wasn't available for dirt-biking or plane flying or other dirt and mud related jobs, so he was slumming with us... :)
|I think the sunflowers really add a nice touch to the laundry, don't you?|
|Libby (sister), Mikey (nephew), and Chele (sister)|
There were complaints about me running a sweat shop at this point.
|I think Libby likes making sunflowers. :)|
She took kits home for about a dozen more!
|Staggering the layers.|
|Ready for stitching on the center by hand. |
There were lots of complaints about this step.
Apparently some of us are having bifocal issues...
|When it came time to do the grunging, MIkey didn't want all his petals flattened out, |
so his are wrinkly. Now that's the way Libby and I want to make them!
I keep forgetting to ask if anyone has any use for the fringe that I have been cutting off the bedspreads that I'm using for pumpkins and sunflower centers. If you could use this for something, leave a comment or send an email. I hate to throw something away that could be used somehow.
