Cara's Beaded Bouquet

It's finally finished and now I can work on other projects...this deadline is done and I'm so very pleased with it! Whoo hoo!

So, my girlfriend commissioned me to make her a beaded flower bouquet for her wedding tomorrow. I had a month to pull it off and that's all I worked on during that time, no running around, no doing dishes, nothing was more a priority than this project. It turned out smashing. There were 4 leaves (various sizes), 4 red tulips, 2 closely colored fushia lily's and 1 hydrangea. I threw in the butterfly that I had made for my wedding for an extra special friendship touch for her. Not in this photo, but I wrapped the stems in a red velvet with pearl tipped stick pins to close it up...so pretty. She was blown away and it was exactly what she had envisioned...thank goodness...that's always the worry for me, that it won't turn out as they expected and they won't like it. Besides pricing, that is the next hardest thing for me as an artist to deal with.

So, now on to working on the house and hanging out with husband and friends and finishing lap blanket and starting fingerless gloves. Went to Stitch n' Bitch last night...only Jen and I...oh well...if you build it they will...eventually. We have a good time anyway...got just a hair more done on the ol' lap blanket. It's turning out great.

It was a success, now I have two wedding bouquets under my belt Posted by Picasa
