Hello everyone! It's been a busy few weeks for me, as usual. My sister came to visit with her baby, who I got to meet for the first time. I was pretty lazy while they were here, as far as chores and working on my flowers.
But I did manage to finish my potted Orchids.
What do you think? I live in a small town, and my selection of pots and bowls for potting is limited. So I found a regular glass one, then painted and sealed the inside before potting my Orchids in plaster with a covering of moss.
This piece will remain in my personal collection. I'm too attached to let it leave.
Tonight I begin work on a white Phalaenopsis Orchid hair clip, and that will, sadly, be my last orchid design. I had so many more ideas, but I just didn't get to make them. Oh well. They are now filed under the "later" category.
I redesigned my website... again. I'm just never satisfied.
Here's what I have planned for June:
My flower of the month will be Roses. I will be making quite a few of them, some with my old pattern. But I will also be trying out some new techniques to see if I can improve them a bit. Since I'm working on Roses, I will be making a pattern for them, which will be available for purchase once I'm done.
I only have a couple of accessory/jewelry ideas, so most of my work will be full flowers.
I also plan on doing a free tutorial for flower assembly. I showed a little bit about this at the end of my Daisy tutorial, but daisies only have a few stems to worry about, so I thought I would show assembly for multi-layered flowers.

2018 One-A-Day Project
I'm making one flower every day for 2018. Every month I will have a different color. At the end of the year I'm going to assemble all the pieces into a wreath. :)
