Well the dyed ribbon flowers came out really well. I have not heat set them yet but the colors are more blended then when they were wet. I took the yellow flower and did some figure 8's behind the center to make looping petals. I don't know if I like the petals or not. I got out the polar bear project and the ribbon flowers are to big for the size of the bears head. Too bad, it looks like I will have to use silk ribbon. The polyester ribbons are to thick to make flowers that are small enough. I wanted to use the polyester ribbon because it is more durable for a children's toy. I'm sure it will look beautiful when it is done, and with three brand new grand nephews I'm sure the polar bear will find a home.

It has been a long day and I deserve a rest after all the sorting! I just found my Teneriffe wheel! So I may stay up after all!
