Crochet Flower Pins

The art show started at work this week and as per tradition, I made a lapel flower for all of the art committee gals to wear. 

This year I decided to use a crochet flower pattern put together by Lucy of Attic 24.


The pattern is fantastic to follow and makes the darn cutest flowers!!  Plus, you may be able to tell, that I had a lot of fun with all the different colors of yarn!


As they each picked their flowers it was often tough for them to decide what there favorite was.  I don't blame them.  I wanted to keep them all!


Art show week is a ton of work, but oh so worth it.  To see people I work with mingling, smiling, and enjoying each other's work really warms my heart! 


Here are a few posts I did about the previous year's work art shows: the scrappy flower pins I made last year, ArtFest 2011, ArtFest 2010.

And I am also giving a confetti quilting demo over a few lunches this week.  I hauled my sewing machine in with me and it should be interesting to sew in front of other people; not something I have ever done before.  I also have to laugh at the thought of using the sewing machine with pumps on.  I may have to kick my shoes off to be able to feel the pedal.

Wish me luck!

Good Luck! your crochet flowers are really sweet and I couldn't choose just one! I remember your last years fabric flowers, also so beautiful! x Teje

Lots of good luck vibes coming your way! Bare foot sewing is the way to go, imagine trying to sew in heels! It'd be like driving in heels, I can't do that either..

The brooches look super, no wonder they found it hard to choose. You are a very generous girl :)

I can totally see how the ladies would have trouble choosing - they are all so pretty. No, really... I just went back for another look and I can't decided! LOL Obviously orange features in what attracts my eye, but the blue/cream blend is pretty too... oh, and then there are the pinks. I'll stop now. I seriously can't decide what I like best!

Oh wow sweet! And yay for you!!! I'm so darned happy for you. ps- I now carry my "sewing socks" in my case for when I sew somewhere else. I cannot sew with shoes on. Pick a cool pair that reflects your personality and introduce yourself while you put them on. : ) A great ice-breaker. : ) (mine are thick wool, dark, with bright flecks in them.) hehe you could get those striped rainbow ones that fit the toes like a glove! ahhh that woudl be so fun. : )
