Flower Power

Welcome 🙂

Every year my Church holds a Flower festival at the end of June, the ladies who arrange the flowers are very talented and always make the Church look beautiful. This year the group of ladies who make banners for the Church (i.e. me and my super team) have been invited to join in and make an arrangement too. We were very pleased to be asked and especially so when the reaction to us making a display of fabric flowers was met with enthusiasm.

So a talented member of our group is keeping us in order (I understand that’s called ‘co-ordinating’ !) and we’re all getting busy making flowers – very exciting.

The theme this year is ‘Reaching Out’ and is highlighting what the various groups in Church do for the community we serve.

Our humble group has chosen this Bible verse to explain what we’re about and that we try to sow seeds of faith using visual art, as well as making the Church building look welcoming for everyone.

‘Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms’                                              1 Peter 4 v10

Everyone’s been working away making flowers and here are a few that I’m working on.

We’ve still got a long way to go but it feels exciting 🙂

Until next time,

    Snap! Well sort of…

    A small group within my quilt group are making fabric flowers for the church flower ladies to use during our Quilt Exhibition in October.

    May I recommend “fast fun and easy Fabric Flowers”? On Thursday next we are making Cala Lilies from the book. I have made a couple of prototypes and they really are easy and dramatic!
    As well as life size.
