I think I started this sometime in December. It may have been before. Sometimes I have an idea of something I want to start and just start it not knowing where it's going. This is a perfect example. I finished the main part of the scarflette and dropped it while I fingured out what next. Later, I picked it up when I decided to add the pink flowers. I felt like it needed a little glitter so I added lame to the cashmere flowers. After adding them with the little lampwork bead in the middle, I knew that I would need buttons that showed off the little white flowers but didn't clash with the bead. So, I went looking on etsy to find someone who could make buttons that matched the bead. Well, no one could match it, but I did find someone who could make some that didn't clash. Voila, pink buttons. Then, you guessed it, it sat around until now waiting for me to be inspired. I just put the finishing touches on it yesterday with cashmere and lame leaves and vines. I do love to see flowers both in winter when everything is so drear, but especially when spring comes and the weather is still chilly at times, especially in the evening. Hmm what will I start now that might get finished in September?
Please give your comments about what gives you inspiration.
