  • Oh gins, I will try and help you, when exactly is the wedding, I have loads of hydrangeas in varying colours, so I could cut them and dry them out for you, I also have a friend who has masses and masses of lavender and likewise I'm sure I could get some of those too.... Do let me know, I could make some tissue paper flowers too, my mother left a box that she had clearly used when she was teaching and so I could put those together for you.....let me know :-) :-)

    Please put your brakes on and stop going downhill so fast, it worries me !! :o :o

  • Haribo darlin thank you for being so lovely xxgins

  • Hi Gins

    Sorry you're not good at the moment.

    I have lavender in the garden and have just bought a hydrangea plant but it is small but could help with a few. They are a bluish purplish colour. Just let us know when you need it for.

    My daughter came home from a group and they had made flowers from paper cake cases, you could get the colour you want.

    I hope you can get back to climbing that hill soon, I have every faith that your can.

    Is xx

  • The blue ish purple colour would be marvelous thank you xxgins

  • Hi Gins, what lovely offers from Foggy and Suffolklass!

    Hope that people being so kind helps the time you're going through - it doesn't relieve the symptoms, but I always feel people's kindness goes a long way to help the low mood I find accompanies my FM.

    I have had a quick look for 'how to's and this seems like the simplest, if you still want to make some yourself:


    Good luck and lots of blessings,

    Zoe xx

  • Zoe darlin thank you for all your kindnes it is great that everybody jumps up to help :) xxgins

  • Hi Gins,

    I can't help you with the flowers as I live in a flat, but I can send you healing thoughts and hope that you feel a good bit better soon.

    love GJ xx

  • It must have been your healing thoughts Jerryjay that got me through the session with the phsio. Thanks I appreciate the thoughts xxgins

  • Hi gins my mum had us making crepe paper flowers every year for the local carnival when I was a child but not sure I could manage top quality standard but willing to help if I can :)

    :) xxxzebxxx :)

  • Big smiles :) xxgins

  • we made them for a carnival a few times from tissues.

    you unfold the tissues and layer them up [I think 4 tissues deep]

    then you fold them length-ways in a concertina fashion.

    wrap some garden wire around the middle 2 or 3 times leaving the ends approx 2" long and twist ends together.

    now open out the concertina folds into a fan shape

    starting on what will be the middle, start to separate the tissue layers - one layer at a time and pulling tightly into the middle [like a daffodil]

    to finish, lightly fluff and shape.

    this will create a rose like flower.

  • Brilliant thanks that is so clear :) I shall be making these xxxgins
