I don't have a MMSC post for this week, because I got backed up when my husband was here, so I have to sit out and catch up a bit. Please don't miss the MMSC fun though. Go check out Priscilla's Blog and join in the fun this week.
I made this card before Christmas, and I thought it would be a good time to show it to you, since I don't have my regular post for the week.
I have wanted to crochet flowers on my cards for some time now, because I have seen some really beautiful ones from some friends of mine, so I bought a book and started to crochet. Keep in mind, it has been over 20 years since I have picked up a crochet hook to make anything! I couldn't even believe that I remembered anything at all!! My memory is escaping me anyway. Wellllll, one thing I did not see coming was how BIG this flower turned out to be. I wanted a small flower embellishment to use on a card with an image on it...instead, I made a flower that had to take up the WHOLE card. lol Good grief. Oh well, I didn't want it to go to waste, so here is what has become of it.
I don't know that I will be crocheting anymore flowers out of this particular book, unless I am looking for something for a bigger project, but I would love to find a book that has smaller flower patterns in it. We'll see. Not so sure these old hands have what it takes to do that tiny, tedious work anymore either : (
Hope you like my creation even if it didn't turn out how I originally intended. You never know what you are going to get until you try, right?
Have a great week. May many blessings come your way!
