I love the French blue pitcher and I love forsythia.
As soon as the forsythia started blooming again this spring, I kept thinking I should buy it.
And since I was making pitchers, I thought I should buy it to see this pitcher design. Good justification, right? (Another funny thing is that I think I first didn't buy it several years ago because I thought it seemed complicated, but it's not (and probably my skill level/confidence has increased.)
It took me a few evenings, but it was very easy and kind of soothing to make. I loved the way the paper became little flowers.
Unfortunately I did lose my pitcher's handle, so I had to make my own, and I made it a bit too big. Also I realized that my paint came out too dark a green on the leaves.
But overall I am really happy with my forsythia and the beautiful French pitcher.

Have a great weekend!
