Over 70 posts so far




I've been getting some neat comments and new visitors so keep on stopping by or sending your friends over........as this rate we will be drawing a name next week I hope!!










So I told you yesterday that I was crocheting some flowers to use as embellishments and this is what I have done so far. Now that I know they are pretty easy to make I will need to go get some different threads as this wasn't done with yarn and I only had 2 colors blue & white in the house. I found instructions for all of these on the internet so had to try them out to see their size and shapes. I'm actually wondering if anyone would be interested in winning flowers like these on my next RAK? Now here is the layout that I did with them









I used 3 of the flowers I made and then put pink brads in the center. The pictures are of Allayah helping me water all my flowers something she really enjoys doing. Maybe she will grow up with my green thumb! Her other grandma Jean also is big into flowers and even sells them on Ebay. Tomorrow I will post some pictures of what is blooming right now around the yard and the gorgeous lilacs that we have on our fence line. Have a great day all!

Louise, I LOVE the blue flowers!! I'd love to have a chance at winning them. I do not have the patience to stick it out with crochet. Knitting barely has me, but I enjoy it and so far, not so bad! ;) I really am resisting taking on another hobby, too. :P

Hey Louise, I'd love a chance to win the flowers too. I can crochet, but my hands are so arthritic that it hurts to bad. The only hobby I won't give up, is scrapping and card making. So I'd even consider buying them! Thanks for sharing.......Jess

These would make fantastic RAK for your blog. They are gorgeous. I would love to learn to make them. I cant learn from online and nobody I know, knows how to make them. :(

Hey Louise how is your garden growing. We're getting buckets of rain here over the last few days. Yesterday wasn't too bad, so folks got in their cook outs. I just wanted to add to our post count. I hope we're getting close!
