Crafty

Mother's Day is coming up.
Are you ready??

These little zipper flowers are easy peasy.
The internet has quite a few tutorials.

I made mine before checking...
so it can't be TOO hard!!!

This is ALL you need!!!!

Begin on the outside and just baste that zipper down.
Around and around you go!!!

Stop in the middle and cover those last few stitches
with some shiny beads!!!
Add a pin on the back...
and you have a pretty snazzy gift for
ANY mother in your life!!!

And look at this!!!!.....

My craftiness rubbed off on someone this weekend!!!
The LEAST likely suspect!

Here's Mr. LoveLaughQuilt...
Surprising us on Easter Morning....
Making corsages with FRESH flowers....
 for my daughters and me!!!

Oh. How. Sweet!

  6. melt my heart - a handmade corsage from your husband?! That is wonderful!
    I clearly remember my dad giving me money and sending me over the florist at the greenhouse to get a corsage for my mom for Mother's Day. I loved it. So feminine.
