Museum Fun

Sorry about being a week late showing you the wonderful project we did at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. This was the monthly Hands On activity that happens the first Saturday of each month. No matter how the project (felt flowers) was approached, everyone had a beautiful piece to take home.

Next month we’ll be making slab bowls as a reminder of Empty Bowls Houston which will be held on May 18th.

Not to forget, Museum Day for District 2 (which includes the Craft Center) will be on the 27th of April. In conjunction with that will be the Gathering of the Guilds at the Craft Center. Check the Museum District’s website for details. (

Spring Surprises

A couple of years ago a friend of mine gave me a very small Angel Trumpet plant. We weren’t sure of the color. I was hoping for salmon, but it didn’t really matter. Last year there was more growth but, unfortunately, no flowers.

This past winter we had no real freeze so all my plants needed some serious trimming. While cutting down the monster rose that grew next to the Angel Trumpet, I saw buds. There were three of them. Yay!

Until the flowers are fully open you can’t really tell what color they will be. Patience, however, rewarded me with the color I had been hoping for.

Beautiful. I look forward to seeing more blooms throughout the year.
