The flower with the lilac center and light outside ring is my most recent flower. I was not tall enough to get them all in (and was too afraid to stand on the crumbly cement benches), so I recruited a tall (very nice) fellow in our office to get a higher vantage point. He stood on the bench, perspective is a wonderful thing! His photo follows....Wasn't that nice of him? I love working with wonderful folk.
Take a visit to Karen's wonderful blog where she has great links to hexi instructions and others who are in One Flower Wednesday: here you go One Flower Wednesday link up.
I did do some sewing & knitting over the Holidays (which starts in November and runs into January for my large, extended family.) I gave some away, made progress on other projects, but only am now getting a new flower completed. To me that means life is getting back to normal!
Our family is quite close... (and did I tell you LARGE?) I have a son and a step daughter, between them, they have 8 children. My daughter in law's family counts me as one of their own, and she is one of 4 children with 4 additional young ones. I have 4 siblings with thier own children & grandchildren. (My younger sister & her husband have 7 children.) My mom is one of 4 girls, each of whom have 3-5 children of their own. So when we gather, it is a happening, and we gather a lot. My holidays include most week-ends away, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
I hope you all had wonderful, joy filled holidays, and warm wishes for joy, hope, health and family in 2012! B
