What Next?

Several months ago I made a list of all the flowers I would like to make someday. Now that May is here I have a lot more free time, but I don't know where to start on my list. So . . . I have decided to let you decide.

I have added a poll to my blog with some of the flowers from my list. The poll will close on Saturday, May 10 at 11:59p EST. I will make the flower(s) with the most votes. To vote go to http://ayanacreations.blogspot.com

New This Month

I was commissioned to make a two-toned sweetheart rose for Cinco de Mayo. This rose was made with hot pink beads with yellow beads for the edging. I also used medium green, specifically emerald green, for the leaves and I found embroidery thread to match. So for your viewing pleasure, I present my first of many two-toned sweetheart roses!
