Christmas Floral Round, 17 years late(r)

I finally finished the Christmas Floral Round, 17 years in the making! It wasn’t hard at all, just loooong overdue!

I started this as a gift for a dear friend (*name withheld to protect the surprise) in 1994.  Life-changing events happened, I moved, then found this in a bag, pattern and all! I even found the receipt tucked inside the  ball! 😀

Oxi-clean is GREAT, it came out perfectly white, age spots disappeared, Billy Mayes would be proud!

It was a bit overcast outside on the morning I took this; I’ll update with a better pic soon!

I worked up two other projects real quick in the past couple weeks, why I haven’t been in here as much lately~

This is another gift for another Life Sis, and again, name withheld in case she’s reading 🙂

I’ve made a coaster to go with another set (gift) and naming it the Purple Coneflower Set:

These coasters take about 2 hours to make, a quick project while enjoying a cup of tea.
