Lilies of the valley - - nuntium duocentesimum quintum

I thought I would try another flower in the bottle but for this I needed long and skinny.  Lilies of the Valley.

Early on a dark day in Minnesota
with a flash- too bright

Technologically enhanced.  Can you see the yellow beads?
 And then I was tired of fiddly stuff and thought I'd try another motif # from DMC Tats.  This is motif #22 and it didn't work.  I made #6  a couple of years ago and it was wonderful but #6 wasn't. It's too crowded and just-ugh.  I haven't blocked it but I dislike things that must be blocked into submission.

Blue River Glades again
Must be time for more snowflakes...


  1. Love your little flower bottles!!! :)
    I am sure they would make wonderful gifts for Mother's Day, or mothers, grandmothers, or aunts birthday gifts!! :) Just a thought.
    I have tried that motif also and couldn't get it to work, but I really want to figure it out some day!! :)

  2. Your flowers in bottles are just so cute! When I was a child, there was a series of toys, a tiny doll and artificial flowers in a plastic bottle. I had Sweetpea, but there was a lily-of-the-valley. They smelt of the appropriate flower too. Your bottles make me think of them. I loved Sweetpea!

  3. Love, love, love those miniatures! I also like to tat pieces that need very minimal blocking. It's so frustrating to have to pull and stretch and hope it stays in place.


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
