The view this morning. Seems like March wants to give us one last shot of snow – it won’t last long because the temps are going to be in the fifties tomorrow and Sunday. Scout’s happy. And I’m happy because I’m going to let Don shovel! I figure I’ve earned it.
Thanks for the get well wishes. I’m still not feeling great, but I feel a bit better this morning. This winter has been the toughest on my sinuses that I can remember. I’m really tired of it all.
Today I have a shop update to share with you. Bear with me as I show you the new banners I’m listing today. Behold, the Springtime Crochet Flower Garland Collection:
These garlands are made from Peaches & Creme Cotton. The flowers measure about 3 ¾ inches in diameter. Peaches & Creme cotton has a heft to it that makes for a sturdy flower. Each banner will come with a coordinating length of ribbon. But as you can see here, you can also use a length of twine or lace or baker’s twine or fishing line. If you use fishing line, your flowers will seem suspended in mid-air. Each of these garlands includes 8 flowers, 4 in each color, and is $14.00.
This group is crocheted in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn. It is incredibly soft and made of a combination of merino wool and cashmere. Since the flowers are smaller and measure 3 inches in diameter, I included 10 each in these garlands. The Celadon is hard to capture accurately, but it is a true Celadon and it is beautiful. As with the others, a length of ribbon will be included. Since this yarn is expensive and there are 10 flowers in each garland, the price is $16.00.
If you see something you want and it’s already been spoken for, let me know. I do have some yarn left in both Peaches & Creme and the Baby Cashmerino and if there’s enough to fulfill your request, I’ll be happy to do so. I also plan on crocheting some garlands in the other colors of Baby Cashmerino that you see in the Multicolors Garland. But I have to crochet a couple of Obsession scarves in the meantime.
The light has been so inconsistent lately, it’s been a battle trying to photograph these garlands. Spring, please come soon!
Update: All banners are sold out. I’ll start making a few more! Thank you!
