New Chrysanthemum Bridge
These are the colors for the next bridge I am building. From left, lemon yellow, goldenrod, and pumpkin orange. There will be 2 lemon yellow and 2 pumpkin orange and 1 goldenrod at the center. The center of each mum I have not attached as I usually do, because I am going to do them all at once to get a more exact size on each to match all the way across. I really wanted to do a hana to go with this set, but I just don't have enough of the goldenrod to make more.
I will also be including foliage with this set, three traditional rounded petal leaves for each mum. Most likely I will use the dark green tea color and memory thread for the stem accent. Then its thread wrapping and mounting. Still a long way to go till I get there. Maybe at the end of the week if I am diligent.
I still have not finished the thread wrapping of the previous white and gold bridge. Truthfully I am tired of working on it and want a new challenge. I will get it done soon, it's too pretty to go unfinished.
