Ashley's Wedding Bouquet

Erics Boutonniere

Time, that aged nurse,
Rocked me to patience.

– John Keats

Since about December, I’ve been totally engrossed in the task of creating fabric flowers for Ashley’s wedding bouquet.  I only wish I had been able to devote more time to posting each flower along the way.  In any case, it’s been lovely delicate work and I have enjoyed every minute.  And now it’s done.  I finally delivered her bouquet and Eric’s boutonniere yesterday afternoon, in the pouring rain.  Would you believe today is the wedding?  Yes I agree I may have cut this one a little close.  Well here we are, yesterday’s rain is a distant memory.  Today the sky is blue and the sunshine is dazzling.  I wish Ashley and Eric many love-filled years ahead.

As for me. I’m feeling pleased and at peace with the finished pieces, and oh so eager to return to my regularly scheduled programming.

Sage Green Fabric Flowers

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

– Edna St. Vincent Millay

These sage green fabric flowers for Ashley’s bouquet started out as something like this tutorial from the Weddingbee.  I digressed by adding a few sparkly sheer ribbon petals.  OK moving along, 5 flowers done, 30 or so more to go!
