This is my flower fiesta art piece… a colourful creative explosion of all things flowery… and that now occupies prime wall space in the Robins nest. It’s exclusive purpose is to cheer and gladden, created specifically to subconsciously brighten the spirit. Made from yarn, felt, buttons and a few beads here and there.
(The links under each of these photo’s contains relevant pattern details).
So, my part was done. What I needed now was for Mr. R to work his magic, making a frame…
Whilst he hammered and stapled, I tied off all of those loose ends…
and once the frame was finished, I began to plan out this fiesta of flowers, in all of their splendid colours
I used skewers as temporary stems and then using a hot glue gun, secured each flower into position.
and began to hand embroider the stems.
I then set about hooking some little leaves; which I am rather thrilled with. I hooked these without a pattern, whilst the boy robins watched a film and I sat snuggled watching the rain.
Rainy days are always the best hooking days!
Anyway…I digress. I did scribble my little leaf pattern down and you can find it just here. Several rainy afternoons later, when I had made many,
I began the final stage of fixing them into position, with (yes you’ve guessed it) my trusty hot glue gun.
Finally, I set about finishing this piece; creating a signature and dating tag.
I simply LOVE this Flower Fiesta
