Memories of Grandad

Welcome 🙂

Back in December I started making these little flowers and I thought you might like to see what I eventually did with them.

They reminded me of chrysanthemums which in turn reminded me of my Grandad who used to grow them in his garden. I have lovely memories of playing in his garden and seeing all the huge flowers tied up to sturdy supports.

So this is what I made,

chrysanthes

A bunch of Chrysanthemums in autumnal colours all jostling for space in a plant pot,

Eagle eyed long term followers might recognise something rather familiar about this wall hanging as I made one similar to it a little while ago.

I have plans to make a third one too, I’m pretty sure what flower I shall be doing – one that reminds me of my Grandma, but haven’t decided on the type of container it’ll be in.

What reminds you of your Grand parents?

Until next time,
