One Flower Wednesday, July 14


Goodmorning, afternoon or evening depending on where in this wonderful world you are.
I managed to finish 12 flowers this past week. Despite being rushed off my feet in the store during the day. But I spent the weekend sewing like a mad woman. I am hoping to have this done in time for Christmas for my brother. Sadly we did not grow up together, well he's almost 18 years younger than me. But over the last 2 or 3 years we've become better acquainted and get along quite well. So I wanted to make him something special. Last year I made him a beaded lighter cover with his name & guitars on it. He loved it!!

So this year I wanted to something else sisterly for my little brother and I'm hoping this flower hex throw will be it.
Until next time.....
Take Care,
Robyn
