In Celebration of Spring!! (Free!)

I thought I'd include a 
today in Celebration of Spring!!

I love motif's, and these are begging to be made and displayed!

Add a button (how to choose?) and a pin onto the back for a pretty little (or not so little, as is the case here) brooch!

Or skip it entirely and display them in your home...

After taking these pictures I got all "WooHOO it's SPRING!" (yesterday was a glorious 73*!) and started snapping pictures of my indoor plant life. It may be spring, but aside from daffodils and the occasional flowering tree, there's a lot of bare and brown out there.

Rooting a Purple-Waffle cutting. Isn't life miraculous?

My new jade plant- wish me luck!

Hello, seedlings. Welcome to the world. :) Future peppers for my plate!

*True* leaves on my kale plants!

Yeah, spring. :):)

 Oh, were you here for the crochet? Sorry, I got side tracked.

Here's the Fabulously Fantastic and FREE pattern for the Frilly Flower MotiF!  =D

  4. I have been trying to crochet (I am a knitter), but teaching myself is not working. Your creations are so beautiful and I love seeing the kale seedlings! So happy to have found your lovely blog:)
