Finishing up..

I have finally finished up some projects that have been sitting on my counter for far too long..A second pair of boots. Made with 100% wool outers and fleece lining. I figured out the two things I am still unhappy with in the pattern, and I believe my next pair should come out better.
These have been a WIP for far too long. I finished up all 10 floral centerpieces for the wedding reception. I am glad I didn't have grand plans of making more of these. I think it took about 10 hours to finish all 10 centerpieces. Probably should have just went with silk and called it a day. I will be the only one looking at them and appreciating all their handmade-ness. Oh well. I will just need to stick a little light in the glass gems so the vase illuminates during the reception. I also tied a ribbon bow on one- can you see it? I think it looks lame, but sweetie likes it. Anyone care to tell me what they think? Bow or no bow?
