I got right to work on this week's Mojo Monday sketch and was able to make a card. It seems like forever since that's happened!When I went to make this card all I knew was that I wanted to use my fun two-toned crocheted flower. I found a couple of sites with directions to crochet your own embellisments (here and somewhere else that I can't currently locate!) and I made these using DMC embroidery floss, which I have tons of. It makes the flowers much smaller than yarn as I tried before on this card, and the colors are bold and have endless possibilities. I see many of these in my future! They only took me about five minutes each and I'm sure I'll get the pattern down, and variations to make a few different types.
Thanks for all the sweet comments while I was away, it brightens my day as I struggle through a rainy day with kids who think today is the last day, not FOURTEEN school days from now. Oy, it's going to be a long month. I'll try to post some NYC pics tomorrow, just have to do a bit of organizing first.
