Basket of Flowers

Like a broken record I'm frequently heard saying I don't like making flowers. I ordered some kits from Pascale as I'd admired them on blogs and thought I'd be able to make some.
I started on one kit and then a year passed......
Oly encouraged me to take the kits from the back of the cupboard and yesterday  we made half each of two more kits. We were thrilled with the results and we now have a few Margarita's and peonies each. I have to thank Oly for her help and Pascale for her beautiful and detailed flower kits. Here are mine in a basket.
Now I hope to finish the poppies I started last year.

  16. This little basket of flowers is amazing Gill! Oh my goodness! Just gorgeous. I'm still trying to figure out how to make these little bags with the hat straw so that they turn out so nice! Quite a challenge for me for some reason! You've done a wonderful job! All of your minis are beautiful! Thank you for sharing your pictures! Carolyn
