Spring Flowers

A while back I started a Pinterest board with novel finishing ideas, and I was looking for a reason to try this little flower idea.  Well, when my friend with 2 daughters jokingly requested "payment" in needlework for picking up my daughter after school (my daughter and her oldest are great friends), I saw the perfect opportunity!

The little sunbonnet girls were freebies I stitched a few years ago, and I 3" finishing forms to make the flower centers.  Everything else came from Michaels - the glass bottle was actually on clearance, and I had a coupon to use on the ribbon, so it was a pretty inexpensive finish as well.

And here is my goofy, wonderful friend upon receiving it.  <3
