It took me days to get from the original beads, a bit of white silk and fabric paint to this finished beauty. Painting the silk and getting a nice, saturated color, with slight shade variations, setting the dye, cutting the fabric up into tiny squares and making around a hundred petals, assembling them all with the embroidered center... Let's say it took a while. All to end up not having anything to do with it, as the person who ordered it didn't realize how big it is. Well, it's a statement piece, after all. Would you wear one of these for an event? I'll keep making them, just because sometimes crochet is not enough for me. Now to find someone who needs a bouquet of sunflowers in their hair.
