Dresdan sunflower thingy

I was playing in my room
I was SUPPOSED to be cleaning up and was in the 
drawer of the desk and found a template

you all KNOW how much I love dresdans!
well this template had no directions but it had
the pretty rounded top
and I had seen a cute topper or mugrug
depending on the size so I started cutting

I started with the "ugly" big flower leaf print
I was thinking hmmmm..........
maybe this will be something
and then added Fall colors

I then sewed them together as I had cut 2
of each petal
I needed to know how many to do
and I had cut 4 too many

thats ok for another day of play right?

once I had it sewn I LOVED it
the ugly wasnt so ugly anymore
and it screamed FALL
and sunflower to me

so I found a dark brown print for the back 
and had just enough of it left to make
the center as well

SUNFLOWER table topper was born!

Jacky liked it too
she tried to take it home when she was here
but I distracted her with a bag of scraps
and sent her on her way.........

I see more of these in my future........

just sayin........

Very cute. Jackie could have nabbed it if she had taken your scraps and accidentally pushed them into the garbage. LOL

Love this - love the not-so-pointy ends. So, did you get your room cleaned? One thing about that - it will ALWAYS wait for you. ~smile~ Roseanne
