It was all purple Lysianthus. Very simple nose gay style. It was a little bigger than this, I had already scavenged some blossoms when I took this pic. But Lysianthus are very bulky flowers so I dissected out the petals and made this 'collage' designed after their invitation.
I trimmed a few of the petals to be heart shaped like the invitation. My flower pressing skills are limited so I don't know if this will preserve well or not. I have a friend who does calligraphy I will ask her to put their names and wedding date at the bottom to complete the composition.
It was kind of fun and different.
I did get to sew this week after all the family had gone home, it's fun but exhausting to entertain for a whole week. I enjoyed my quiet sewing time. I finished a top for donation to City of Hope.
Randy gave me a big bag of scraps a couple of weeks ago and I pulled these lovelies out. I got the idea for the set from Jill's blog, Simple Frugal... which she had to close on account of spam problems. Anyway it was a lot of fun and I just love leftovers and this set.
cheers, Claire W.
PS- My Husband and I got new lap tops yesterday to replace the burgled ones. It's amazing how much faster it is than my old one!
