I didn't get to complete the fuchsias in class last night. I didn't realise that every single stem/wire had to be wrapped in florist tape. The lady next to me, J, helped me to do some as she had done hers - she is not a newbie to the class like me! I was very thankful for her help. She also gave me lots of hints and tips.
Here are my Fuchsias. The view is from above. (I ought to start looking at using my 'posh'
camera for such pictures, I think they would turn out better). I finished this evening. I was free-wheeling it alot with where to put what. I have never attended flower arranging either, but gave it my best welly - and am pleased with the result. Tell me what you think?!!
I am enjoying the sugarcraft and am spurred on by a fairly successful first go. There is so much to it and it is an expensive hobby. I've not yet dare have day dreams where I can make dazzling cakes and sell them! I am, as I've said before, looking forward to decorating the christmas cake on the 10th. I have been reliably informed that to get it finished on the day, you have to work like the absolute clappers! After Chistmas, the class is doing Spring Flowers.
