pretty little thing...

Here today, sharing what I should have shared yesterday...oops!  What a house full of boys and a long weekend will do to my brain.  So, celebrating Epiphany Crafts this week with The Twinery!  Worked on a few ideas and found that crocheting the flower was the one I liked the best.  A fun mix with this adorable girl sticker from My Little Shoebox.
For a tutorial, easy to follow video for creating this flower check out YouTube HERE.  This is what I used for the basic steps, although I altered the length and scallops a bit on mine.  Don't be afraid of trying to crochet.  Once you learn the basics the rest is easy...and thanks to the pause option on the videos!
Just a little something I have been working on using a few dies that have been ignored lately.  This little mug and leaves from Quickutz.

I can crochet...a straight row, but even if I pause the videos, I don't understand all of the codes. I just need to sit down and learn! I LOVE the teacups, but I went back a few posts and I really, really Love the little girl in your "Delightful" post! What do you do with all of the Pretties you create? I'm now a new follower and look forward to spending time going back and seeing all of the things you have already made and will for sure be stopping by for future projects! Hugs ~ Jo

I really love the oval frame that goes around the teacups. Could you tell me if that is a die? If so, who makes it! Thx!
