Flowers everywhere ......

Good morning Blogland Neighborhood! The MBIAJ Sewing/Craft Dept has been having fun this week cutting out lots of wool felt flowers .... flowers, flowers, flowers....




.....flowers everywhere ...... why? well it's just a continuation of a childhood
"thing" for .....


......flowers on bathing caps like these and .....


.....these! Childhood pal Suzy and I spent many a summer day diving to the bottom of the Valley Pool to retrieve flowers that had fallen off of bathing caps. By the end of summer we had quite the collection of bathing cap flowers ..... we were the champion bathing cap flower collectors of the Valley Pool! AND, in addition to bathing cap flowers, we made tons of "mod" flowers using .....



......this very child safe (NOT by today's standards!) "Thing Maker Fun Flowers". Do you remember this? My brother also had the "Thing Maker Creepy Crawlers" to make plastic bugs ..... which of course went well with our "mod" flowers .....

Anyhow .... just what will the Sewing/Craft Dept be doing with all of those wool felt flowers? They have no idea ....yet. They'll let us know when they have a brain storm.....until then, they're just having fun cutting out flowers !

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

I remember having bathing caps just like that!

Your flowers look so pretty. I haven't thought of anything you can do with them, yet, but as creative as you are, I'm sure you'll think of something soon.

Have fun making flowers!
