I’ve been traveling more lately and wanted something fun to do while hanging about in airports and such. It had to be portable, fun and relaxing. I thought and thought — hmmm. The knitting craze is still going strong around here — so then it hit me — crochet! My Grandma — Beem as I called her — taught me to crochet before she died. I had to be 7 or 8. Picked up a Klutz book on crochet and it all came flooding back to me.
I told my Grandma who is still alive about it, and while she doesn’t crochet herself, she told me all about how Great-Grandma used to crochet all the time. So I decided that the first thing I made that wasn’t too lumpy and bumpy would be for her — it was this flower. I attached it to the ribbon with a safety pin so that she can take it off the card front and use it as a pin — or whatever else!
Oh and as you can probably tell from the photo, it’s pretty cloudy here. Sure hope we get some rain, we really need it. If you have any rain you don’t want send it my way.
Supplies: All stamps by Hero Arts — I love this new dainty flower, it’s called Decorative Branch. The yellow notecard is also from Hero Arts. I used ColorBox Thistle ink for the flowers– from their new Easter Eggs Petal Points set — and Ancient Page Chocolate ink for the message. Ribbon from my stash.
