If I Can't Be At The Sewing Machine......

I'd like to be creating floral arrangements (or with my head in a book) :)

I had the opportunity to put together an arrangement of flowers on the weekend.

This is what I started out with

This is my bowl ready for flowers to be put into

And this is the finished product. There is always a point when I'm putting arrangements together where I start to panic that it's all going to be a flop and look really ugly. Thankfully, it wasn't the case this time. I was reasonably happy with how it turned out.

Now I'm hanging out until I can do it all over again. I find floristry so therapeutic! :)


  1. Wow it looks beautiful! Did you take classes to learn floristry?

  2. Hi Mel,

    Yes I have done a short adult education course on floristry - I hope to be able to a full-time one next year!

    Thanks for the comments ladies!


  3. Congratulations Caitlin, you've done a lovely job. My garden is looking a picture at the moment with all the blossoms and bulbs, and like you, I delight to make a nice vase of them for the home. Have a good evening, love from Helen P.
