Hi friends! I’m so ready for sun. Green grass. Stuffing my heavy wool coat into the closet and forgetting about it. Fresh air blowing through the house. Unfortunately, that’s going to be delayed for a bit in my part of the world. So I’m consoling myself by pulling out photos of brightly colored completed projects.
I made this centerpiece for my mom’s birthday a little more than a year ago. (Has it really been that long? Wow.) She’s a big fan of Mary Engelbreit, so I wanted to make her something with colors/patterns reminiscent of the designer’s whimsical pieces.
I followed the Beauty Rose Potholder pattern pretty closely for this one – I just left off the backing layer and skipped the corner loop. On the last round of each square, I joined to the next square as I went. It’s made from various colors of Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread. I love how it turned out! Sorry for the poor-quality photos – I’ll have to get some better ones at some point. Stay warm!
