Thank you so much!

Wow I want to try make this. How long does it you to make it?

Thanks for the comment! I think I got to where I could make an "average" flower in 20minutes or so. But it does take a lot of time so you need to be prepared for that investment. But that is what art is for, to fill our time and lives with beauty and satisfaction! Good luck.

Congratulations on a beautiful Instuctable......

Your instructions are so easy to follow that I just had to begin creating.

I too am retired and am enjoying the freedom to just sit and make something, without the guilt.....lol

You have gained a follower.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Retirement is the best thing that ever happened to me. Isn't it great to have that freedom? Would love to see some of your work!
