    I began one for my oldest grandson when he was a babe, using fabric from all the members of his family, both sides. His Dad is my son.
    He's soon to be 19; I'm hoping to finish it for his first born (not even in the offing - I HOPE)

    Here's to you having better stick-to-ativeness than I.

    I think I'm more impressed with the organization of your materials than I am with the finished flower (although that is pretty impressive too). I've thought of making a Grandmother's Flower Garden many times over the years, but haven't gotten around to it.

    You're off to a fabulous start! For most of us a GFG is a long-term project so don't set unrealistic goals; enjoy making your flowers and let it grow over time. Keep us posted!

    Beautiful start and love the other colours you have there. I admire your organised work box...I won't even begin to describe how my Grandmother's Flower Garden bits and pieces are stored.
