Flax Flowers

It was my mams birthday last weekend, so this weekend my sister and I are going to her house to cook dinner. We're having a curry night, with dahl, onion bahji and other curried yummies :-)

Yesterday I learnt how to weave flax into flowers as the Maori do. So this evening I've made a small flax flower bouquet for my mam (since I'm potentially going to be unemployed in a few weeks and we are being thrifty hahaha).

I am only a beginner, though I am quite happy with my first wee bouquet , I added some beads to the centres and as the flax dries it will have more shades of green.
