Friday Photo Challenge

Today’s photo challenge is much easier than last week, todays word is ‘floral’, although my first thought was flowers from the garden, then I decided floral was a bit deeper than that, more of using a flower or the image of a flower, such as a floral arrangement, or floral fabric.

I haven’t done much in the way of floral arrangements, but we did have a mini workshop at our WI craft club where I made quite a pretty arrangement of flowers and candles.DSC_0020 (2)

My favourite dress at the moment is definitely floral, I made it last year and I have worn it lots of times. The fabric was a complete impulse buy, like it flashed up on facebook and within five minutes I’d bought a length! It’s one of those dress that makes me feel good, if ever I need a confidence boost I wear my red rose dress.McCalls 6966

If several flowers make floral, then I stitched a floral scene on wool at a recent Embroiderers Guild workshop. We felted blobs of wool on a piece of blanket fabric and then embroidered on top. I’ve put it in my Travelling Sketchbook as my theme is flowers.DSC_0022 (1)

Of course I couldn’t resist a floral arrangement of photographs from our garden…

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
