Mother's Day

Don't you just love this gorgeous iris!?  Bearded irises are so frilly and so beautiful and come in so many fabulous colors.  My mother-in-law really likes purple (and it's the only color I thought I could safely color) so it was really a no-brainer. : )

Raisin Boat #31--Moms & Dads
Craft-Dee BowZ--anything goes with handmade bow
