Well, this has to have turned out very different from the start of a lovely pattern. First, the arms were not long enough, and I ended up adding the white to lengthen all, and then it was laying all wonky, so I ended up edging it out and I'm telling you, it went to about kindergarten level. Lol. Oh well. Nice try, Julie!!

Hi! I have been gone from the blog quite some time. One thing I've been trying to practice, is learning to crochet. YouTube is my best friend for this! I can actually watch and really learn! I was never able to fully grasp it before now, but I am pushing forward, and to my happiness, learning. Below is a flower I made, which will be one of about 35 that all link together to make a tote bag! Should be fun. These are good for portability.
Here is a 3-D butterfly I just tried. He's kinda cute!
Here below is what I thought was a butterfly, but I really think it must be a Luna moth with those bottom thingies hanging down. This one was a huge challenge. I lost the ability to follow the pattern once I got to the bottom two curly bits, and the outer right wing, so I just did it by trying to copy what I had done on the other wing. It ended up being OK, not perfect. But cute. I think I will block it and stiffen it to use as some sort of decoration.
I almost forgot to include pictures of two bows I made. The oink is large...about 5inches long, and the red us tiny about 1.5 inches long.

Taking down the Christmas tree, and put up the little 2 foot Valentine tree today. Its very cute.
I found the pink lights at Big Lots yesterday, and that sort of cinched the deal. Almost all of the ornaments and chains (garlands) were made previous years by the grands.
I took photos from all three sides. I know, I'm just a silly Chika!!!! Now I am slowly working on finishing the other tree takedown.
Here are some Swedish Heart baskets that Emmie and I made from Christmas cards!
My latest obsession is anything Swedish. Excited to find out there will be a season 2 of Welcome To Sweden. If you missed the first season, you can watch all of the shows on the NBC APP. The commercials are aggravating, but I just get up and do something while they play. Its worth it to see the show.
