From time to time it is nice to make something different, isn't it? I have been thinking of making a new set of flower bowls for months now, but what with one thing and another I have not had the time. So, this weekend I decided to get out my ruler and compasses and draw up the pattern for a sunflower bowl. I had forgotten how quickly they 'grow'! Within a few hours I had created 2 bowls and by the end of the weekend the entire set was finished, embellished with beads and lots of stitch.
They make a good addition to the flower series, don't you think? I'm now wondering which flower to make next.
Festive poinsettias: 3 reversible nesting bowls
Blue water lily: 5 revresible nesting bowls
Summer sunflowers: 4 reversible nesting bowls
I have added the flower bowls to the list of classes I teach and you can see the course brochure here. At the moment I am busy with the Doodle Birds, but on May 16th and 17th I will be teaching the techniques I used to create 'Sardine Run' at Midsomer Quilting, in Chilcompton, Somerset. If you would like to book your place on the course, please contact De on 01761 239 333 (or click here to go directly to the MQ website). I will be returning to Midsomer Quilting in November to teach Doodle Birds, but Chris hasn't quite finalised dates yet, so I can't tell you exactly when. I am really looking forward to teaching at MQ as it is such a relaxed place.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog - I hope these cheerful flowers brightened up a grey day.
