That's nice, a varied selection of flowers & the vase in black & white helps with the contrast
to the colourful flowers.

Very good like the variation. I did a few 4 petal daisys for a neighbours child and just tied with red ribbon. (Yes her name is Daisy)
They towered over her.
I've got to master the weave.

Hi Fairby,

Just a suggestion to improve on your daisys, if you twist exactly the same yellow head again, and twist two of them together you'll have an 8 petal flower instead creating a nicer looking daisy. You prbably already knew that, if so please excuse me for butting in ;)

Cheers, I give it a go (I need more yellow balloons !!!)  :D  8-)

I've just made another vase for a friend who is about to open in a west end show so I thought i'd share. Its not as good as i'd liked as I only had 260s so was quite limited as to the flowers I could make.

By the way can anyone guess what her favourite colours are?

Nice Vase! Would make a nice gift or table decor.
         I also use 160's for daisies like you have.

Nice one PT - I actually didn't use any 160s for this vase as I didn't have any in grey and orange, it would have been better if i did have as there are some lovely flowers in 160!

Having always been one to try something a bit different I did my first vase from a different weave.
I liked it and so did my wife and as it was for her that was very important  :D

Michael,
If you ever do a DVD on Weaving, I would be one to purchase one, it's one I would love to have. I am awed by your talent every time I see your work.  

Adding my first 2009 "wish" to my "WISH I HAD" list...
