Hi all, this is a non stitching post - it has been a busy week -- Book Club on Tuesday then the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival which opened yesterday Friday.  So the Friday newspaper is printed on PINK newsprint paper.  Unfortunately this came out upside down and I tried to get it right side up - to no avail!!
I spent most of the week planning and doing designs for the Ikebana exhibit that will be placed in one of the historic homes in Macon, Georgia.
 Below is my final designs.  I used pine branches and Protia flowers.  I did the mantel and the fireplace.
There were about 23 of us that did one or two designs on Thursday in preparation for the Festival which will last for about 10 days.  We all take turns going to the house to water the designs and to make sure that they are still looking good.  If there is an issue the original designer is called and they go and fix up their design.
                                        My design in the fireplace in the front music room
                                              The view of the whole fireplace and both designs

                                                     A close up of the mantel design.
Thank you for stopping by - hope to have some photos of my cherry trees in my yard soon.  They still haven't bloomed just yet!!!
