Thank you for the pleasant responses to my butterflies. So I thought to myself why not make ladybugs. I made one and it was a start as one can see then, I figured out my ladybugs. The body of the ladybug is quite quick but the eyes and the spots take much more time but still fun to make.

Happy Spring! I have patterns for butterflies, but I wanted to create my own pattern. I feel so inspired by all the other amazing crochet I see on Etsy. So I created butterflies with the same versatility as my flower pair motifs. They have a loop on the back so they can slide on my hair clips, bobby pins, necklace, headbands, and as a pin with a safety pin. So I am slowly taking a break from flowers to mix in some butterflies. Next will be ladybugs at my daughters request.
March is National Crochet Month to celebrate I thought I would share pictures of my yarn stash. From floor to ceiling, I have file crates filled, some stuffed with yarn. So much yarn in fact, I am sure I should never buy yarn again. Sometimes though, you find yourself in a yarn shop in the bargain section and all the bargain yarn is half off, the lowest price, who wouldn’t walk out with a large bag or two. Then thinking you have one skein of Lustersheen at home and you bought some $1.00 Lustersheen, why not go back get a regular priced skein so you can make the striped vest on the cover of a Crochet Today issue.
Just recently on a rainy day I sat down with my daughter and my two kid clients and we watched the Wizard of Oz. I could not help but sing along with Judy Garland as she sang, Somewhere over the Rainbow. When they showed Dorothy first wearing the ruby slippers my daughter turned to me and said “sparkly shoes mama.” She is only 2 but she did enjoy her first viewing of this 70 year old movie. I can’t believe this movie is 70 years old. It is such remarkable movie, be sure to watch it sometime soon.
I have been making flowers for my clips, ponytail holders, and necklaces and earrings. I made this necklace after a contact told me about Sophie Digard, she makes some amazing necklaces and wraps. A friend also told me about some crochet necklaces for kids she saw at the mall. So keep checking my Etsy store for new items.
