The flowers are blooming!!

I found the most wonderful quick project at one of my favorite sites… Petals to Picots!  Kara is one of my favorite bloggers and has great patterns and Link Parties!  A couple of weeks ago she posted a pattern for Flower Cleansing Pads,,, I couldn’t wait to give them a try and I wasn’t disappointed!  They were quick to work up and the pattern is very easy to follow!  Click Here to check out her pattern.  Check out what I made in just a couple of hours last night…

The  weather is changing and so are the colors of spring… I was inspired to make some Twisted Stitches Coffee Cozies in new bright spring colors!  I decided to try a few in Bright Cotton Yarn and see how they sell at Alpine Originals for the spring/summer season…  This pattern is available for free HERE or by clicking on the Patterns tab at the top of the page…

May Day… It’s another crafty day…

May,,, A beautiful month,,, Flower will begin to bloom,,, More sunshine,,, And my baby will turn 17 this month…

.

Like you know,,, I love to crochet… I have tried my hand at many other things and love to craft…  Alpine Originals keeps me quite busy with my crochet sales,,, but one of the other popular items I sell there are some adorable small boxes that I make out of Folded Sheets of beautiful paper… I make 3 sizes and yesterday they told me they were almost out of  my Hand Folded Boxes

So,,, I sat down at the kitchen table and whipped up 12 boxes in no time at all…I love to see how each one turns out once they are folded and glued in place…
