For Joy and Whimsy
I want to pound flowers too! What a neat thing to do! Guess I'll have to wait since it's midnight.Explain more..after they dry..then what? Is this embroidery?
Holee....wait for morning!I let them dry, but it's easier to peel off the flower before it's completely dry.I picture adding embroidery, maybe some beads. Wouldn't it be pretty to applique this on to a crazy quilt block andthen frame it?I need to look up the Simply Quilts episode that talked about flower-pounding. There was something mentioned about treating the fabric first. C'mon! Let's make some pretties!!~ Jes

Kathy - Thank YouThat is a great link !!!The scarf idea is sure pretty.This sure would be pretty tied in with crazy quilting.~ Jes
Dang Jessica! Now you go and show me something else to do! I love it! My hydrangeas are in full bloom right now and in three shades of blue and also purple. Looks like I'll have to pick a bunch to take with me on vacation -bring my hammer too. Do I dare thank you? LOL!Nicki
