Mother’s Handwork…

My Mother loves to crochet and I’ve gotten her interested in making some cards.  I have been trying to get her to try her hand at crocheting some items that can be used on a card.   These are her first attempts at designing some items.

Here she has various sizes and colors of her rose flower.  I love the 3-dimensional look she achieves with the petals.  I also told her the little pink flower would be perfect for layering together with other flowers.

These are little borders of crochet to add down or across a card.  I’m looking forward to sharing these pieces on a future card.  However, it is a little difficult to give them away since my Mother made them.  But, some lucky person will get to see just how beautiful her crochet handwork is and I pray they appreciate it as much as I do for every little stitch she has done.

There is a lot of years of experience and a lot of love that goes into each item she makes.  She told me this week she had designed another flower that she thinks is better than this one.

 Now that is what I’m talking about, getting those 80 year creative juices flowing.  Thanks Mom, for your beautiful work!

P.S.  If you are interested, I’m sure she would be glad to sale you some.  She can always use extra money for her “stash”!
