Birthday Peonies

This bouquet took me longer than I anticipated.
Maybe it is because I am still learning.
At first I had the leaves single, but then realized they were to flimsy,
so I made them double. Then I wanted to add the buds....
In the end I was happy...
and my friend liked her gift.
Now for the next project, maybe some colourful Poppies.

Tulips for winter

 So many of my friends have birthdays in July, I think there is 12 of them!
So I started these tulips over the weekend and finished them today.
One down and about 6 to go...

My fingers are a bit dry and cracked, but I had lots of fun.

I always learn something new with every project.
and I can see my improvement. 

I found these small metal containers
at our local craft shop. 
They are perfect for the job.
