I am so excited! No, it doesn't take a lot to excite me - lol! Can you guess what I am making? It is a little difficult to tell from my pictures but I am making my first ever flower scarf!!!!! Yay!
Thank you Carmelina over at Creative Carmelina has inspired me to learn how to crochet flowers! I have always wanted to learn because for the longest time I have had an idea of crocheting a flower scarf but the problem has been that I didn't think I could learn how do do anything other than a straight or zig zag line! However, after blog hopping and seeing Carmelina's beautiful crocheted florettes I knew I had to put my 'big girl' pants on and just learn how to do it already!!!! lol! So I opened up the internet and found a pattern and went for it! YAY! Eventually, once I have all the flowers sewn together it will magically become a flower scarf! I am not your ordinary fashionista... I like to do things differently so I love flowing blouses, long skirts and most always... flowers in my hair! I have so many flower head bands I have lost count! I love making my accessories so this flower scarf works perfectly for my purpose! Once I am finished making the white flowers I may add some color to them but I haven't decided yet.
Thank you Carmelina for inspiring me to learn how to make them!
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. Happy Creating and much love!
PS What do you think of my new background and banner? These were difficult to choose and find the right colors to represent me ~ I think I finally chose right though!
