Petals/Inspire Me Thursday

Petals! What lovely fragile parts of a flower. When I think of petals I see them falling softly to the ground after the bloom has gone. I think of rose petals on the bed(from television not my own life too much cleanup). I think of their lovely scent and how fragile and quickly time flies and they are gone replaced hopefully by different blooms and different petals.

My friend Mendofleur had a beautiful petal jacket on her blog a while ago(a truly great submission for Inspire Me Thursday, so you can find it at for yourself if she doesn't share it). It captures the petal just perfectly and is a real work of art so please go and see it. I love it and I know you will too. It reminds me once again how we are all a part of a whole and connected and yet we are petals that have fallen off the flower and have blown away. Her work is lovely.

As for my own petals, this is my handful of flowers. It is one of my favorite hand embroidered hands and does fit the topic. I am just about finished with my current piece flamethrower and will share it soon! Happy Stitching! May your petals blow in the sunshine and a cool breeze.

Thank you so much for referencing my petal jacket. Such fine compliments! I hope I can live up to these.

Your handful of flowers is beautiful too. All that wonderful stitching and the color is lovely. Do you still have this piece?

I wish I had gloves like your hand full of flowers! Have a great weekend, I'm going to look at mendofleur's jacket next.

How absolutely beautiful--the colors are to die for. You should get your stuff into that gift shop on Broadway next to Borders in Saratoga. In August you'd be sold out! I grew up in SGF and my sis is in Saratoga Springs. I love that area.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
