I was surfing around for gift ideas and realized that a friend, Fern knits (okay...crotchets) these cheerful corsages. It could be a brooch or something to hang off a bag. To me, they're ideal accessories to go with gifts to the friends! Especially to those whom I know will appreciate these handmade beauties, and who won't have her creations. For those of you who know her, you'd already have seen (and probably own a piece) her work.
Totally thrilled that she agreed to make me 15. Woot! It was a fair bit of effort, and done during a crazy couple of weeks at work, and through a vacation. (Thank you babe!) When I got home and looked at them in earnest, I realized the girl didn't even put a stamp of ownership on those corsages! She doesn't do this for a living, and certainly not as a paid hobby. It's absolutely sweet of her to do this favor for me!
As I was thrown into the silly frenzy of having to wrap presents, I decided to make a tiny card to complement the corsages and give Fern due recognition because each roseate bloom is totally worth its weight in gold and more. Of course I'm not showing all of them here. Keeping secrets and sorely tempted to keep two for myself! Aren't they simply adorable?
