Armed with some paper, pencils and scissors I began the construction process. Once I was happy with the shape of the blades and colour combinations, I cut them out. Then I began stitching them together. A few minutes later I caught myself thinking that actually it was fun and quite easy.
One after another the petals were coming together creating lovely pastel flowers. It was not that hard or scary after all. Once again I showed myself that there is no need to be afraid of any new technique or pattern, just give it a try and do your best, and of course - learn on the way and have fun.
The hand stitches are not that even and straight. I had an impulse to redo the quilting but after a short self-talk I kept on sewing and now I am quite fond of that sweet "handmade" touch.
How a wonderful week everybody! Larisa xox
