    I am up late tonight, can’t sleep and it’s 0330. I love to crochet flowers and I am always looking for new patterns to try. I’ve been using Ravelry for inspiration for some time now but somehow I’ve missed your amazingly beautiful flowers until now. I truly am “gob smacked” if a lady in the USA can use that term! I’ve NEVER seen such lovely designs, and I’m hoping to make most of the flowers. I don’t have a big budget as I’m disabled and on a fixed income, but I do have a very large yarn stash and lots of thread that my mom left to me when she passed on 3 years ago. She did so much beautiful work and the house is awash in doilies of all sorts. Thank you for sharing your great talent! I’m very excited to get started.
