Crepe Paper Roses

Too beautiful for words!
I think no one could believe what they saw once
 they completed their roses.

We had a wonderful bunch of people on Saturday
for the two workshops. Everyone chose their own colour and 
then the cutting started. 
After a while we started
curling and cupping.... 
ok, important words when you are making flowers.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the workshops,
we had a wonderful day.

Preparing for the market.

It is the end of the year and the crafters I know
are working very hard to prepare for the markets at 
which they sell their products.

I have been painting these tiny creations
and the joy and anticipation of how the paint will dry 
is exhilarating.

The free motion sewing is something I have always 
wanted to do and I hope these are just the first few steps.

Do I keep the thread or do I cut it off?
You are welcome to leave a comment and help me decide.
