Picture and project from http://www.countryliving.com/
Feeling much better, thanks for all your emails. I guess it was a sign telling me to slow down.
I decided to take today off from work and make it an extra long weekend. Monday is a Canadian Holiday (Victoria Day).
I'm planning to clean up my closets and plant my herb garden. I also plan to sneak in my craft room and make some of these flowers.
Have you seen this great project from Country Living?
Sewing Pattern Flowers
An elementary school craft takes on a sophisticated edge when fashioned from the tissue-thin paper of old sewing patterns.
Step 1: For each flower, cut six 7-inch squares from the pattern. Stack and fold them accordion-style six times, forming a one-by seven-inch rectangle. Snip off the corners of the rectangle with scissors.
Step 2: Tightly twist a wire floral stem around the center of the rectangle.
Step 3: Fan out the paper, then pull apart each layer, creating the blossom.
Enjoy your weekend!
