Thank You

Thank You to all the ladies who took the time to leave a comment.  This time I used a paper template.  First I sewed  each petal to the center flower then the sides.  It went real smooth, fun and Hooray!!  Brook

First Flower Garden

Here is the First Flower Garden, You can see the center is incorrect on two corners.
Actually the entire flower could be better, I know with practice they should improve.

Please give advice , comments welcomed. Brook

It looks so easy, ladies you have my respect. I was so frustrated. I watched the tutorials. They were excellent. My big mistake was having hexie plastic templates. Need I say Slippery. I put together the outer ring then the center. Outside went ok, inside ok until last side , as you can see corners are round, not fitting properly. Next time I will use paper. Any other advice please tell me. I have always wanted to do this pattern, but this one will not be in the quilt. Hope next week to improve. I am a stubborn old lady and will not give up to difficult. The One Flower Wednesday is a brillant idea and looking forward to progress in the garden. Blessings Brook

It's About Time.

I have been in my new town and home for one year and three months.The days have flown and time runs faster each day. I have a love for gardening to get lost in the soil and the peace from nature. My intention for 2011 was to post every week. Life had a different plan, with two eye surgeries, my daily routine had changes and turns. As health permitted, I have worked on my new pattern designs. At present, my patterns/kits are in a wonderful shop. THE WOOL LADY, located in Old Town, Temecula ,California. Have a wonderful week. Blessings , Brook
