It all started with the recent autumn air cooling things down at night. I usually peruse the craft store aisles for the new yarns to start a lil’ somethin’ on one of my knitting looms and like everyone else, I turn my attention to sunflowers and fall colors. I always seem to run out of these colors in my Quilling box before the first frost!
Tomorrow, I am teaching a card design class and thought since I made some sunflowers I would doll ‘em up and put them in a vase to give to each of my attendees as a thank you gift. I needed just the right size vase bottle in order to house just one quilled sunflower—not too big-not to small. I started to look for vases at the craft stores to no avail. Then, while grocery shopping I came across the cutest lil’ wine bottles…sure enough the perfect size and with slightly tinted green glass—Perfect! And, not to forget to mention my darling husband and I shared a toast in order for me to get this project on the move! Win-Win!
