This is a 'Flower of the Month' pin I did recently. From the November '08 issue of 'Crochet!'. I had a little bit of gold thread w/ shiny thread going through it:
I probably have enough to do one more. Then I remembered all the blue yarn I bought at the Goodwill a long time ago (I used up all the rest on BICOs, amazingly...) :
Now I will have a use for a lot of it! :P I just need to get more silver and gold buttons. These two were on the bottom of my sewing basket. I have about three to five more I could use, too. Don't you love being able to use *nothing* and make *something*? :P I already gave the blue one to someone in our congregation who gave me a 'Hawaii Flowers' Calendar. I don't know if she likes it or not, yet. (I wrapped it up and gave it to her... I haven't seen her since.) The gold one I am sending to my 'elder' on Pine Ridge. She said she likes to wear jewelry. I have some white thread w/ a silvery thread through it, some red, and some silver that I could use to make more. I am thinking about looking for other flower patterns online I could use for these...
Well that is about it. I am also testing something for someone but that isn't done yet. :-D I hope you are having a good day wherever you are. Til next time~~~ :)
