Happy New Year! Woo hoo! I'm so excited to spend every Wednesday for the next 50 weeks with you! We are going to have so much fun!
My word for 2014 is Inspire. My goal with Fellowship of the Flowers is to inspire you to create, experiment, play and be free from rules. I want you to have something fun and happy to look forward to each week. You deserve it! :)
Our first flower in the Fellowship is the tulip.
I used the running stitch and a stab stitch. Super easy to do.
I couched sparkly yarn around the edges and added some bling with beads.
These are the Valdani pearl cotton colors I used.
The sparkly yarn I got at Michaels Arts and Crafts. They come in a package called Bon Bons. The beads I got at Walmart. The fabric came from my stash. This is going to be a great way to use up scraps this year.
A little hint. This flower is one of three which will be used in the project at the end of the month. So, if you want to plan a color scheme, now is the time or you can make a scrappy look. You are the artist on this adventure, so have fun and play!
The bunnies and I would love for you to spread the word to your friends, family and guild members about joining the Fellowship. Grab the button from the sidebar if you like.
Remember you can join any time, but only friends in the fellowship will receive the flower patterns and instructions, as well as, the 12 monthly projects. In addition, I am available to answer any questions you may have.
The wool kits will be available all year
and the thread kits too.
Next week I will tell you how to join the groups to share your flowers. So until then...what will your flower look like this week?
Lastly, I invite you to hop over to my Facebook page, LIKE it and leave a comment. One lucky person will receive a signed copy of my book and a pair of bunny scissors!
