Hi everyone! Say hello to all of my swallowtail caterpillars! I have at least 20! They love to climb to the top of the stems and sunbathe! I'm so excited to see what happens!

I had a long, dry creative spell, and am basically in the same state. Just staying busy with living stuff, no time for much else. I've even laid off Facebook as much.
Until next time! Hugs to you!

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.
