Fellowship of the Flowers Week 50 and a recap

Fifty weeks...I can't believe fifty weeks has gone by so quickly. We made it. I made it! ;)

This is the last flower in our series.

Here's how it looked before I stitched it.

I don't know why, but I think it has a 1950's vibe. What do you think?

Those of you who participated, did you keep up? Are you behind? How far are you behind?

I think this was a fun adventure for me. It kept me creating something new each and every week. I'm doing something on a personal note for the new year. You won't get to see it until 2016. Sometimes an artist just has to have some private moments with art. I'm using 2015 to hear myself again.

We've been busy little bees this year.

We have made bell pulls

and table mats

and pillows

and candle mats

and gift bags

and post cards

and brooches

and needle keeps

and snack mats and more

mats and more

mats and

bee keepers with our


and table stands for friends

and decorative little table mats again!

Next week will be our grand finale project. I sincerely hope you have enjoyed your journey with me and the bunnies as much as we have enjoyed our journey with you.

Please note, you can still sign up and receive all the project instructions until December 17th. Don't miss out. Click the Fellowship of the Flowers tab at the top for more information.

Cheers and hip hip hoary for time well spent in the company of such good friends!

Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina kitty too!

OK, first of all, yes, there is a 1950s color theme in that first design...and a taste of strawberry pie. YEP, that is what it "tastes" like to me! And the rest of the designs my friend, they remind me of the entire year. That darling bee reminds me of our summer. The other designs bring back great moments visiting you all through 2014. YOU are gorgeous and I just want to thank you for always being a great blogger pal.

Off to work for me! Anita

First and foremost is Congratulations to you Michelle Dear for every stitch, design, finished project and your excellent cheerleading during this year of Fellowship of the Flowers!!! Thank You My Friend. To see every week in review is glorious and very inspirational. These will be timeless gifts to make and treasure any time of any year.

Shel, I just love looking at your work! I've been away from quilting for a while now. I even, gasp, sold my Bernina 1630 this year!!! I am newly discovering hand stitching along with a little help every now and then from my new best friend - Maggie, a 1914 Singer hand-crank sewing machine. It is mind boggling how lovely the stitching is from a machine that is 100 years old!!! OK, I don't have access to machine made fancy stitches but there is always embroidery! I am just so tired of technology I am trying to narrow down the areas I use it in... sewing/quilting is one place! I don't know if I will ever make as beautiful stitches as you do but you give me the inspiration to try! :D
Hugs to you, the Bunns and of course Sabrina!!! Happy Holidays girlfriend,
Beth P

Hello there, pretty sister in Bunnyville! I loved scrolling down again to see the magic of your hands. GOSH the texture and perfect stitching of your work...I LOVE ART and what it does to us!

Thank you so much for visiting my little Paris. I am here enjoying all the lights of my theatre, of my fireplace, and the warmth of friends across the miles. Give the fluffy furry ones a big squeeze for me! XOXOXOXO
