WOW #202-Kusudama?

Just a quickie post today to all the wowers out there.  Firstly I would like to apologise for not visiting very many others last week.   But on last Wed. afternoon I developed the dreaded virus that has been around all winter.  Better now but still have a rotten cough.  But on to better things, Kusudama refer to the flower I have been making while laid up last week.  They are made from individuals squares of paper, folded origami style.  Book is a new sewing journal I am starting, thought i would spruce it up.  Flowers are not attached!
For all the details re WoW hop over to the lovely Julia's @ StampingGround.  Have a good day everyone, and my thoughts go out to everyone over the pond in Boston.

  2. Oh Francesca, those flowers! They are truly lovely, sad to say origami and I do not get on at all. They look fabulous on the book - are you going to stick some of them on? Love the colours and decoration on the book cover. Fabulous.
    Hope you soon feel 100%
    Thanks for visiting me earlier - Hugs Neet xx 5
