      Thank you, I find it hard to use just one colour as I usually like things to be very colourful but we have such lovely flowers being contributed I want to show them off at their best. So back to more green hooking!

        Thank you, I go from feeling it will be fine to panicing that I still have so much to do. But I am sure it will be great on the day and we have parcels arriving nearly every day as well as what we are making ourselves.

        That is so exciting! But I know what you mean! I always start worrying when I have so much to do, but it is an awesome feeling being done with everything (when it gets done)

    I have been doing a flower a day thing on my blog for my donation specifically if you want a preview of what I’m going to send. Is it okay if I send out my flowers at the end of the month? I just want to know I’m giving you enough time to put them together.
    Much Happiness,
    Megan

      Thanks, it’s stylecraft Life dk and the shade is Fern, the flowers are some that I had left over from the Floral Cushion I eventually managed to finish at the end of last year.

      I can almost do it in my sleep now! I cannot take credit for the flowers, only the top image ones are from my stash, all the others were from the 30 that were contributed by the lovely Hatted Owl shown in the previous post. Actually I should add that in, sorry Hatted Owl.
