A Blog By Any Other Name

it's about crochet ..... it's about writing ....

Part of me is a wife and mom, part of me is a writer and poet and part of me is still a kid in jeans tooling around in my VW Beetle listening to Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, James Taylor ... and The Beatles ...

... blog about it ...

Today I googled "crochet may flowers pattern" and it came up with a whole bunch of pretty shapes and colors.  One in particular caught my eye.  While not actually a flower, the picture was just nice to look at.  Curious, I went to the site where the picture was located.  She was talking about a new crochet hook and the picture is what she made with that new hook - some pretty, eye-catching coasters.
The pattern can be found on the About.com: Crochet site.
Sandi Marshall rewrote a pattern from 1893.

I have made this coaster but MemeRose definitely brought it to life.
