Birthday Bouquet

Happy Birthday Mom! Well, it was actually yesterday, but I didn't want to post until she received her present in the mail. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, even though it was on Yom Kippur...

And, you are wondering what it was that I sent her?! Well, rather than sending some real flowers, I decided to knit them this year. How cool are these?! I love them and am going to be making lots more of these in the future, not to mention that I am already planning on making one of each for the store. This bouquet has tulips, daffodils and calla lillies and all the patterns are by Pick Up Sticks. I was also going to do some Iris's but they come out much larger than these flowers and I didn't want them to look out of place. So, even though its fall in Boston, here are some flowers on my front porch...




And some closeups...



I know I promised to show a few new projects, but that will just have to wait until the weekend... Happy Friday everyone!

Those look fabulous! I actually just bought the daisy/sunflower & tulip pattern and one of my best friends bought the iris and daffodil? So we can share! Now I want to make them today! Wouldn't it be cool if they had a pattern for fall leaves?
