Crochet Flower Brooch

This is a gift for a very special lady in my life – my mom. 🙂 I had seen the idea of making a crocheted button flower floating around Facebook and just had to try it out for myself! 🙂

I added the purple slip stitching, leaves and pin with backing on my own initiative. The final piece came out quite clean and I’m really pleased. I hope she likes it! (I love you Mom!)

Happy Jellyfish in Light Blue

It’s been awhile since I made my first jellyfish or even since I crocheted last! Work has been keeping me busy and it’s Summer. Summer = Vacation. :3

I tried something a bit different with this jelly, ie. making separate pieces then stitching together instead of directly crocheting onto the body/head. The “skirt” looks better than the direct stitch though this method takes much longer to assemble… I am hoping it is just a learning curve. My mom suggested making the little tentacles longer which I will be experimenting with next. Hopefully I will have a finalized crochet pattern by August.

What do you think of the Jelly?

The Lord God said…

…that it is not good for the Anna to be alone. So Anna purchased four goldfish from Petco and brought them home.

Since my last goldfish were such a bland pale gold I decided I wanted something a little more flashy and decided on four red and whites. A big thank you to Devyn at Petco for patiently retrieving 4 specific goldfish out of a tank of 200+ and removing two that were “too white”. :3
