Hubby's trying to fight off a nasty headache/cold bless him, and I've had a mad busy couple of days and the rest of the week is looking similar.
Still, when I was helping Mum sort out her Cruise wardrobe at the weekend, she asked for some help. One of the ball's they (have to) attend will be a 'Black and White Ball'. She's got a great long black dress that she can use for all the balls, and a little black silky jacket to go over the top, but no white.
Seeing Mum in her dress I was reminded of one of my all-time favourite films - Now, Voyager with Bette Davis. If you haven't seen it I would heartily recommend it, it's a truly beautiful empowering love story but certainly not a normal love story. Bett's character, Charlotte Vale, is sent a beautiful corsage of gardenias by her friend and lover played by Paul Henreid. I thought something like that would look lovely.
So, today I've started to try to make Mum a corsage made from felt, inspired by Charlotte's corsage.
Here it is so far, hopefully I'll have it finished tomorrow.
Oh, and I couldn't not add a couple of butterflies as my Mum is obsessed with them. What do you think??? x
