I know that the first day of spring is designated as March 20th. However, March in the midwest where I was born doesn’t usually feel too much like spring. For me, Easter always seemed to be the more logical, fun, and yummy (mmmm, chocolate!) start of spring – and I still feel this way. So let the cuteness begin!

Happy Easter to All, and to all a no-upset-stomach, no-sugar-high, blissfully quiet night!

(All photos reposted from Pinterest. I do my best to give the correct URL to each photo, but I can’t be responsible if the site has taken the page down or if there is no pattern. I consider this type of blog “inspiration”, and if a pattern is available, that’s just a happy bonus!)

Since spring is here and many flowers have shaken off their winter inertia, I thought I should come up with a seasonally appropriate post. Plus, I just recently joined Crochet.Community (an online group) and they hold quarterly competitions where the winner is awarded $50 and a t-shirt. This current competition is, of course, flower themed. The only really good flower I’ve made I gave to my mom, and didn’t take a photo of it beforehand. So instead I entered a very elegant (if I do say so myself!) Poinsettia Potholder. Not the spring flowers the CC had in mind, I’m sure, but it didn’t get kicked out either. So we’ll have to see. Results will be in on May 1st – just in time for my next post.

Earlier today I was perusing Pinterest and came across some of the most gorgeous crocheted flowers. BTW, as a general rule I don’t like crocheted flowers – too kitschy for me I guess – but these are definitely the exception. Enjoy!
