Pastel flowers and whites! Soft, whisper colors. Not typical for me - I usually like brights and browns and big, big color. But lately I've found inspiration from the palest of spring flowers.
I was also inspired by this:
A sweet little teal towel that my mom sent me as a gift. It's so pretty and white and full of soft lovely herbs. I haven't been able to bring myself to use it for drying off the dishes. It's just been hanging in the kitchen looking lovely. And see that little butterfly in the upper left hand corner - well that little guy was the inspiration for a whole new pattern (coming soon too)!
With all this inspiration, I headed off to audition the yarn stash for a part in a new wreath -
And I gathered a soft palette of dks and worsteds, mostly cottons.
I added a few of these (CLICK HERE FOR FREE PATTERN).
And after a few weeks of pattern making, designing, hooking, stitching, and weaving in the ends, they are all coming together for their big debut.
The wreath is done and all the patterns are up - tutorials made etc... Go HERE to see the final wreath post. Go HERE to see the butterfly tutorial.
