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.
