White stuff everywhere...still...and it's about this time of year when I've pretty much had my fill of it. I wish spring was here already ... would love to see the tips of the tulips poking out of the ground ... but alas ... that is still a couple months away.
A few years back during this generally depressing time of year, I decided that I just had to make something ... springy ... to get me through till the day when I could see the new growth for real.
This bouquet was the first of two groupings (each with three flowers ... and will show the whole thing later). The patterns were shared in Maureen Greeson's newsletter ... where some of you may have seen this already ... but for those who didn't ... I will share them again here in a set of posts to follow.
They were created using fine wire ... upon which the beads are loaded ... then the wires criss-cross through to anchor the row. Each petal & leaf is created individually then wired together and wrapped in floral tape to finish.
