Flowers

Hello dear readers,

Although, compared with Europe and other countries, our winter is mild, we do have a few very cold, rainy and dreary days.  On such days I just sit down in my warm kitchen,  make flowers and plants and dream of spring days.  I experimented  making stems for my flowers and found out that soaking a green cotton , slightly thicker thread, in a slightly diluted white plastic glue solution makes it stiff enough to stand up. It is easy to glue on flower petals and leaves on this stem.



Flowers with thread stems.











Irises on paper coated wire stems.




Flowers with thread stems.




I'll make leaves to mix with the flowers as bouquets.  These are intended for the next meeting with the local miniaturists, date unknown yet.

I wish you all a warm and cozy weekend with blessings.
