Making Sari Silk Daisies ...

Hello my dear friends,

firstly I hope you are all at home as much as possible, staying safe and healthy.
 If you have to be at work or out and about in any way, I wish you health and send you hugs. I am still trying to be as good as possible and staying at home, working on making my to-do list a little shorter and being creative too which seems to be working quite well these days. In a teeny tiny way it is good that I am "stuck" at home. It has made me work harder on being creative again and I am using more of my stash up too because I can't go out and buy anything new and I am not really missing that all that much as of right now.

As far as I am aware blogger has fixed the issue with the disappearing pictures so I have fixed the posts with my missing photos and I am happy about. I am unfortunately behind in sharing what I have been up to in the past weeks here on Todolwen but I will try and let you catch up as quickly as possible starting with a new creation in this post.

A little while ago I didn't know what to make so I went looking around in my studio. I peeked in all of the boxes, tins and baskets and then found this ... a ball of soft white sari silk ribbon.

 It has been waiting patiently in a basket for me to come up with a design for it and now it's happened! Since it is still snowing off and on my thoughts went with summertime and flowers that grow in our garden and especially all of the pretty daisies that make an appearance every year. And there it was, my newest design/idea ... I would make daisies!

After making a lot of dandelion blowy flowers I only had ...

... short pieces of brown paper covered wire left but it would have to do.
I got to work right away and I was fortunate that my idea turned out exactly the way I wanted it too the first time. That always gives me that little buzz to continue with trying to make new things and work on new ideas and again it is working as of right now.

And here it is, my take on a silk daisy ...

I love that they are not perfect but they are my style in every way.
I hope you like my newest little making as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen and I hope you do come back some time again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

Stay safe and stay healthy.
