Flower Sampler Class

First day of the flower class was fun. It's pretty much always the same group of women who I never get to see except at these classes. We used to try to get together once a month to just bead, but that fell apart due to everyone's conflicting schedules. Funny, I always planned my schedule around those dates! (true sign of my addiction, I guess).

We all joked and called this flower the rare "turkey blossom".

This tulip was worked in clear beads using a color thread for the middle section. Not very photogenic. Working with the clear beads drives my eyes batty.

Here are the rest of the shapes for the board. Can't wait to see how they are beaded. I think I'll stick with pastel shades for all the flowers. I like the way it looks against the deep plum velvet.

This looks like a lot of fun. It would be very interesting to see how everyone else's turns out. Are you teaching or taking the class?
P.S. It looks like you have a SPAM comment before this one..

These are GREAT! I really like the tulip. I find it so inspiring whenever I stop in for a visit.

I love the flowers. I have not tried anything like this. Guess it is just one more thing I need to learn. I am needing to bead. I cleaned my area today. That can only mean one thing!
