Allison's flowers

Spring is arriving here. It's just coming slowly. Our first daffodil bloomed on Easter, followed by several more as the week wore on.

Since we don't yet have lots of colorful blooms outside, I'm sharing some flowers Allison made (she also gets the photo credit).

I checked out a Kanzashi book from the library several months ago when Allison and I were in an origami class at co-op. She enjoyed the origami so much, I just knew she'd be interested in Kanzashi. I was right.

I kept thinking I'd look at the book and try some things out but somehow, I never got around to it. Allison took it and ran with it. She is constantly crafting new flowers out of scraps-or new fat quarters.

So, until spring is fully sprung in these here parts, we'll have to brighten our days with Allison's blooms.

  1. Those are absolutely gorgeous! There are so many things you could do with these. My mind is churning with ideas.

  2. She is so talented!

    At least with Spring starting late there, with her talent, spring is at least in your home!

  3. Allison, you know I adore these! I love the colors you used and the different centers. You are so talented. Great photo too!

  4. Oooh SO pretty, Allison! I really wanted to try origami and make just ONE thing once, but I got confused by all the origami "terms" and whatnot! So I seriously greatly admire this post and Allison's skill.
