Dazzling Utah May Flowers

Get set....

 Here are some snapshots of flowers and shrubs that are displaying their beauty this month in my yard. Oh, how I love flowers. Each plant and blossom finds a way to my heart and energizes my soul! What would I do without natures beauty. I see the hand of God in all that nature has to offer.

Love Shirt Refashioned

 I had this darling shirt for my little girl and I wanted to remove the peace sign.

After unpicking the peace sign I was ready to attach a fabric flower in its place.

 Using a needle and thread, I hand sewed the lacy flower onto the shirt. To make the flower, I layered circles of silk on top of each other and burned the edges with a candle flame. The flame singes the circular edges and makes a beautiful ruffle edged flower.

 My daughter loves this sweet shirt and the frilly flower.
