I've always wanted to try making a Grandmother's Flower Garden. Libby had posted the stars she's been working on. I commented that I wanted to try one and she emailed me where I could get the papers, gave me suggestions as to size and I was off and running. Now Libby prefers the 1/2" size but I thought....nope no way, I'm not working with something that small. I'm going bigger. I'm going for the 1.5" ones. So I place my order and it arrives days later. I'm excited....I'm ready to start my flower garden. I cut out my patches and proceed to stitch them around these 1.5" papers. After trying 6 or 7 of them with very poor results I"m ready to throw the whole thing in the trash. I should have listened to Libby and gotten the 1/2" ones because they would be much easier to stitch since they are much smaller and easier to handle. I emailed her again telling her of the error of my ways....how I didn't listen to her because Libby really did know best. Being the sweet dear lady that she is she told me not to fret....there really was light at the end of the tunnel. She gave me a few tips and here is my flower. Aren't bloggy friends just the best!!!!
