Some Roses for My Mom

My Mom just recently had surgery to have her gall bladder removed. I would have taken her over some flowers, but being over 2050 miles away.... :( It's kind of hard. I suppose I could go online to find a florist, or call one of my sisters who live there, but.... I decided to crochet her some roses. I got the idea while looking at Robins' snake scarf pattern. I saw in her sidebar, 'Crocheted Long Stem Roses' and clicked on it. I read through a little, and thought about it.... then thought 'I should crochet my Mom some flowers.' Well then I thought 'No, this is totally tacky, I don't even think she would like these...' Sigh.... I don't know if I should send them or not. What do you think, blog readers? I would love to get some crocheted flowers, but I crochet and I like just about anything. I don't know what to do.... :( I also bought her some chocolates, and some jelly belly jelly beans. Roses and chocolates.... ?
Here is a red w/ tan tail feathers rooster hotpad I made for myself. I showed my husband the black one I made, and he said 'I thought you were going to make a red one?' (I never *said* that, but, hey... duh.... my kitchen is red and tan, with roosters...) I don't know why I didn't think of that. I probably would have, eventually, but.... :P Well I should get to bed now. I hope everyone is having a good week (TGIF tomorrow) and staying warm and safe in this crazy winter weather!

What a sweet daughter you are! Your roses are beautiful. I'm sure your mom will love them. Love the rooster, too!
Hugs, Cherri

I say send them, they came out beautiful! You also have the other items too so it will balance out. I thought the same thing when I sent a dozen to my stepdaughter for Mother's Day, but she LOVED them.

I made one without the pipe cleaner and added magnets to the back. I have it on the inside of my front door. When my sister saw it she went nuts over it! She kept telling me how she would love one for her house *hint *hint. I guess she will be getting some for her b-day in March.

Thanks, Robin! I did send them on Friday. I will find out when she gets the package what her reaction is. I think they are lovely and a great idea. Thanks again for sharing your pattern!
