I am hoping that this post shows you how much I value all the comments that you take the time to write on my posts. Last week I showed you some wire flowers and asked you what combinations you thought would work. This week I worked on your suggestions and here are the results:
This was suggested by nurse on the run, Highland Monkeys, Planet Penny, Wendy from Handmade Harbour (and host to the wonderful Handmade Monday), Wendy from Alice and Florence, and Claire from Claireabellemakes.
Alison from Ali Bee Creations suggested a combination of red and green might work well for Christmas. Having made the red flower however I decided that the green wire I had was just not bright enough to go with the vivid red. I did think that silver would be a good match and still retain the Christmas theme……but then liked it on its own. What do you think?
Oh and Alison also liked the pink and green idea too.
Finally Catkin Jane shared her love for the combination of purple and pink together:
The only suggestion I failed to do was from Stephen from Soy of the North who had the brilliant idea of combining wool and wire together. I shall be having a go at this as I think it is quite inspired. 🙂
Sometimes you have an idea but can’t quite see how to finish it so it is really great that you are all so happy to join in and help. You even help to extend the idea further. It is truly appreciated. THANK YOU. You may be relieved to see that I don’t have any testing questions to ask of you this week.
If you don’t know any of the blogs listed here then I really do suggest that you pop over and have a look – you won’t be sorry I promise. Many of them can be found over at Handmade Monday which is where I shall shortly be heading to see what sort of week everyone has had. No doubt Christmas will be high on the list.
Hope you all have a very happy week 🙂
