Just stopping in quickly to post some pictures of finishes from a couple of weeks ago. (Sorry!!!!!!!) I’ve picked up another GhostStitchers assignment, so it’s been occupying my time. So has a baby shower gift. The baby shower is tomorrow, so I will post pictures of that later.
I’m also working on something else on the Work From Home front, and I will update all of you on that as it develops. It’s a good and very exciting thing.
Okay! So I mentioned before that we had our Secret Sister reveal at church on Mothers’ Day weekend. My Secret Sister loves the color green, and is a busy mom. So I decided to make her a spring-y tote bag. I used the same pattern as I did for the straps on Katie’s dress (I know, I know, you still haven’t seen the finished product – I still blame the husband for that) – you can find the pattern here. (It’s a free download, but you do need to register with your e-mail address. There are a lot of beautiful, simple crochet projects on this site.)
I used a dark sage green as my main color, and made the centers of the flowers out of different colors in my stash (almost entirely Caron Simply Soft). I used brown as an accent color for the base, the edging at the top, and the handle.
Instructions for attaching the flowers to each other are included in the downloadable pattern.
