I've finished the poinsettia for Ms. Dorrie. This will get packed up and get sent out tomorrow. The pattern is based on Virginia Nathanson's patter for the red petals. The centers were my own creation, and you can see the trial and error in what I had done different between the larger cluster and the smaller. Then I added some holly and berries as filler at the bottom. I hadn't expected to do this much but one needs greenery to complete the arrangmenet!
