More flowers....

Just a quick post before bed. A massive thank you to everyone who came to visit us at Kettering at the weekend. I was there on Sunday, and as usual had a great time. Lovely to meet some wonderful crafters.

I demoed my fusible fibres again, and tried the tip that a very canny crafter emailed me to tell me about. Rather than gluing the flower together when coiled together, i used the heat gun. Just a few little blasts fused the flower together. And a few blasts to the petals made the flower even more interesting. A massive thank you to the crafter who passed that tip on - I'm so sorry I'm not giving you a name check, I couldn't fine your post to me :(. I was made up it worked though.

So, a few shiny flowers ready to go out with web site orders.

Love the flowers Leonie. I get really really jealous when everyone talks about the big craft shows they've visited. Living is Spain, card making is quite low key. Really must plan a holiday to the UK to coincide with one of the shows.
