Several years ago in Crafts Beautiful there was an article to make one of these. Ever since I've been collecting up the bits to make my own version and after several failed attempts I decided I would complete it this Mother's Day or give up.Sorry I didn't keep the details of which designer made it, but she must have had the patience of a saint. What with chopping up oasis and Branston Pickle running off with my Flower Soft, I thought there was going to be a very big mess. I'm quite pleased with the finished result, but I will probably never make one again. I have some mini pots left that I might put paper flowers in and I may incorporate beaded flowers on another project.
I'm entering this and the card below for the March themes at By The Cute and Girly - Spring and Crafty Calendar Challenge #6 - Flower Power.
Yesterday's picture prompted lots of lovely comments. I think a messy Wednesday workspace is definitely more interesting, spying all the hidden treasures. The crisps belong to Small-N-Grubby but I did sneak a few. The cupboard at the back with the lattice doors has acrylic blocks, peg stamps and a few boxed stamp sets in.
The wooden letters are not destined for any exciting project. I use them for sponging or misting over. Like in the card I made to go with the flower pot. I've got 2 sets of the letters (they were only a couple of quid) one for messy projects and one clean set I use for drawing round and cutting out.
Feeling much better today and managed to get up the hill to school this morning without having to choose between breathing and speaking, although I still had to stop and catch my breath as we reached the top.
