One by one, we lined up our creations. Anxious with anticipation! Still hearing
that voice inside saying, "Did I do enough? Did I do too little?" And not
knowing the answer until each one was opened. Scooping up our parcels,
we headed to a corner of the room ready to see what laid inside each
beautifully presented box. Within seconds, we turned into group of giddy
women, delighted with fabulous fabric flowers each different from the other!
A creamy, white wired ribbon rose ... 8" in diameter. Layer upon
layer creating this luscious look. Can't you see this on a boudoir pillow?
Taupe petals, mixed with glittered tulle. Each edge tinged in a deeper shade of taupe due to its fabrication. Petals gently curled up. A lovely rhinestone center. And backed with a vintage crocheted doily. Delicious!
A Dior rose! A lovely twist of fabric to create the folds. Pearl center and cream seam binding cascading down. So unique. So elegant!
A beautifully inspired vintage fabric flower that laid flat... as if found in the
bottom of a drawer. Shell pink fabric petals mixed with cream. Touches of
lace and chiffon. A rhinestone center. Very romantic!
Was this not a fabulous swap or what? How I would love for all of us to sit
down and teach each other our tricks!
As for mine with the story about Elise, I thought I would print it here so
it's easier to read. Enjoy!
Elise pushed her way through the
throngs of passengers gathered at
the railing of the Olympia. She lets
out a gasp at the realization that
they had finally arrived at their
A new country...
A new beginning!
As Elise brushes away the tears
that have welled up in her eyes,
her slight fingers brush against the
corsage her mother had pinned on
her wool coat before leaving. Worn
from traveling, she is grateful for the
reminder of where she came from..
and what she left behind.
