Yay!  Sunflowers!  The past couple evenings I have been experimenting with sunflowers.  This is a little closeup of what I come up with.  I <3 it totally!!
So now my brain is full of idea, and my fingers cannot keep up!
Isn't it buckstery!  I attached it to a doubled granny square trimmed with pony beads and a thimble. 
What do you think???  I haven't decided where to hang it yet.

Today I have been gluing.  Sounds strange, but I enjoy it, just as much as a can of spray paint.

Aren't they cool!  I really get a charge from the colored glass.  It's amazing what you can find in your cabinets and under the kitchen sink!

I actually made more than this today.  The middle one is my fave.  The one on the left is promised to a buddy.  These really look neat when the light hits them. I can't wait to see them in the evening with tea lights in them!

I tested a pattern for a friend and just had to share!

Isn't it cute!!!   I made three.  They are fun and quick to crochet up. 

Perfect size for and Iphone.  You can get the pattern here.  Her patterns are very well written and easy to follow!

That's it for me.  It is way too hot here to be outside.  We've spent the day in the air conditioning today!

Hope to be back this weekend with more sunflowers!

Love the sunflowers! They are so big and pretty. Your iPhone cozies are too cute. I've fallen down on the job and haven't even finished one. I told Ellen I fired myself.
