24 years and counting!
And so, I am remembering that special day with this bouquet of flowers table mat that I created. The center area is hand needle felted and includes a variety of color tones for the flowers, with pink as the base. The leaves feature four different green shades which details the shading, veins and subtle effects of leaves, just like in nature. The inside of the scallops each have a pearl flower button with a teeny pastel pink button on top. The whole piece was blanket stitched to a wool backing with a pink crochet thread. It's a beautiful piece that only took a couple of hours to design and make. Making these types of table mats is really fun and easy to accomplish. Just keep in mind the delicate beauty of a flower in bloom and watch it grow from there!
Hope you have a very enjoyable day!
