My Worktable Is Blooming ..

Hello my dear friends,

outside the flowers are not quite ready to bloom yet ~ we just had new snow fall again this weekend ~ but it is a different story here in my studio these days because...

... my worktable is blooming!

I had bought some lovely colored fabric and I have been making flowers bloom. Well, not really ... I have been making more singed edged roses and in lovely shades of cream, yellow and others too.

Just take a look ...

There are soft cream roses and ...

... here are my cream and yellow blooms. 

I also made yellow and pale pink mixed roses ...

... and my Grandma's favorite ...

... lovely yellow roses.
 I am sure she would have liked them very much.

 I have a little thing at the moment for making these pretty little blossoms even though it can feel almost somewhat like a little chore when you are cutting the circles out and don't forget the singing of the fingers ... that is the not nice part of this but I seem to just want to make one more and then I will be done. I tend to do this with other things to, I get hooked and just can't stop. Well, it does keep me busy and I love being creative so much too, so all is good.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to visit me here at Todolwen. I love it when you do so.
Do come again soon and see what I have been up too.

  1. They are very pretty! I can see them decorating all kinds of lovely creations.

  2. Now I have visions of these adorning a lovely Easter bonnet. Although - do people wear Easter bonnets any more?

  3. Happy Monday morning! Your roses are so lovely, love the soft colors. Now you have a wonderful stash just waiting to embellish one of your lovely creations. Have a creative week and can't wait to see what your next project is!!! :)

  4. What a gorgeous little bouquet you created! I especially love the two-tone pink and yellow ones. I know what you mean about making 'just one more'! I tend to get a wee bit obsessive when I'm crafting, too.

    Take care of those singed fingers! :-)

  5. Karen, these roses are so lovely.I love making flowers too, and how clever of you to make the buds and stems. I could see these on my shelves!!

  6. I, too, have to make "just one more" ... and then things are totally out of control.

    Your roses are beautiful and I just know your gramma is smiling down on you right now. Now if only your snow would melt and Mother Nature would cooperate and give you the real deal.

    Happy day!

  7. I love your blooming flowers soooooooooooooo much Karen!
    Spring has to come now in Canada too.

    Hugs Ines♥
