Happy Mother's Day!

Flower Pin
Here's a pin I'm going to give my Gram for Mother's Day!  I crocheted the flower and leaves from the Japanese crochet book Lacework Floral Design (with size 3 thread and a 2.2mm hook).  I glued the leaves onto the back of the flower, a pearl bead onto the front, and then sewed on a pin back.  Et voila!  A crocheted flower brooch!  ("Brooch" sounds much fancier than "pin.")

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!!

  5. I bet your Gram will love her brooch! I like the pointed petals and the pearl centre.
    I had FaceTime with both my children today. I hope you are having a lovely day celebrating your Mum and Gram!
