Luscious Lace

Hi, I've got a pretty tag to show you today

this is my Luscious lace project for Creative Inspirations.
we have a great sponsor this week and a lovely prize up for grabs so I hope you will come and join us.
I've used my Prima script stamp for the background and I'd forgot how much I love it.
I really think I need to make a matching card so watch this space.

Hi crafters,
oh I just love the new challenge at Creative Inspirations this week.
we would like to see your buttons.
I love using buttons on cards and my friend send me a pinterest pin for crochet flowers with buttons so this was the perfect opportunity to give them a try.
I must say they were easier than I thought they would be.

I used a pretty pink thread that was a gift from a special friend (thank you Sandy)
I love how the flowers turned out but I'm tempted to double up the buttons on the next one I make.
please pop over to Creative Inspirations and join us this week, we love to see all you creations.

the hats and clothes were coloured using
R14 R17 R39 YG95 and W7
and the sky is B95 & B97
I did the sentiment on the computer using sweetheart font and papyrus and its so true
Together is my favourite place to be.

February's pinterest project

Hi crafters,
I know its only the 2nd today but I was soooo keen to get started on this project that I started early. plus I expected it to take me more than a month to make but it was surprisingly easy.
I'm still a crochet beginner and have only made 5 things before this, two blankets, two scarves and a poppy brooch so this was a bit of a challenge but I totally loved making it.
the original pattern was done using jute twine but as Im new to crochet I thought I wouldn't be able to manage that so I used some crochet cotton instead and I love it.
I will have to get some jute now though and make another one.
the original can be found here along with the free pattern.
star stitch. easier than it looks....honest!
so that's February's pinterest project finished already so I might have to make another one.
I have lots of idea's saved.
If you have made anything from pinterest I would love to see what it is and I will add a link here if you contact me.
MargaretD2 will be along with her project soon so please keep an eye on here blog here.
thanks for stopping by and I would love it if you could leave me a comment.
