Poinsettia's that is:
Putting away the last of Christmas,
I thought it might be a good idea to block these for a few reasons:
1) so they are all ready for next year,
2) to see how they look blocked,
3) see if these would make good ornaments for the tree.
This is what I did:
Pulled out the handy-dandy blocking board I made for
crocheted snowflake blocking from this post.
Then gathered up the remaining supplies: pins, starch and bowl.
Soaked flowers in starch and and wrung out.
Placed on board with pins.
Let them dry...and that's it:
AFTER and BEFORE
(I like these too, but not for ornaments.)
Very easy and what a difference!
Poinsettia in-the-round pattern can be found here.
Here they are enjoying the sunshine. :)
We have sunshine today and it may be a good day for a long walk!
Have a sunny day!
