    :-D :-D :-D :-D Just finished this up and started it last night. I'm going to find a hunk of ribbon or some thing to make a little bow to put on the top of it. This picture turned out pretty good. I took another one with a flash, but it did not turn out at all. This one is really nice and it will hang where it is. In the hall between the bedroom and bath. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    That is stunning!! I really have to give this a try, I would love to see a whole quilt made with these, I wonder if you could find a way to do that without adding more fabric to the backing.

    Cheers!

    I love it - I like how you used two colors - for some reason I used 7 different colors and picking them out almost drove me crazy - but I like it now. These are fun to make.

    They are so attractive and I love your color combination! Now I don't know which way to go with one!

    Thanks for showing it "your way"!

    Well I took 2 hunks of fabric larger than the project and then took the inside of the embroidery hoop and drew a circle. Then made sure the fabric is pinned together and then sewed the circle and then took a pair of pinks and then cut out the inside of the circle and now I have the fabric with a hole in it. I turned it right side out and gave it a good pressing and then put it on the project and pinned with extra pins too and top stitched it down . Then put the embroidery hoop on it and pulled the fabric taught and then tighten the embroidery hoop and then trimmed off the excess fabric from the back of the hoop. Then I used a hot glue gun to glue down the lace. Note: The two pieces of fabric you put together right sides together and after you stich and cut out the circle you turn it right side out. I have a book called folded star and the instructions are in that book, but I have no idea where it is. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    I would love to see someone make a purse with a dahlia on the front of the purse. Go for it!
