I made these roses for our Pastor’s wife. She is going to make them into pins by adding a button to the center and a pin to the back.


Here is the pattern for them. :)


Make a chain of 48


Petals 1-3; skip 2 ch, * 1 dc in each of the next 2 ch, ch 1, ss in next ch, ch 1 and repeat from * 2 times.


Petals 4-6; * ch 2, 1 tr in each of the 4 ch, ch 2, ss in next ch, repeat from * 3 times.


Petals 7-9; * ch 2, 1 tr in each of the next 6 ch, ch 2, ss in next ch, repeat from * 3 times.


Putting together; Press petals to shape, starting with the smallest petal, stitching around as you go.


I used a H or a I hook, it just depends on the thickness of your yarn. Use any color you like best, I added to the flowers above, I made a silver flower along with a dark green one.

I made this head band so in the winter I can wear my hair in a pony tail and not have my ears freeze.

I tried something new last week. I made a wrist cuff, It is for a friend at church, Tasha. It’s a little different than the one she wanted made, so if she doesn’t like it, it will be added to her booth at the Dickens fair.

Yes, I carved a pumpkin! :D Though this year I tried something new, and it wasn’t very easy. I only carved the skin off and left the flesh so only a little bit of light came trough. Josh was over that night as well so he “helped” me with the tree and then he carved the back. :)
