FM July 27, 2009

Hello again. My tomatoes are just beginning to ripen, the daylilies are still blooming and the roses are (surprise) still blooming. Usually by this time, the heat has caused them to blow out. And speaking of roses.....

Here's a crochet flower pin with button

that is based on Lion Brand crochet roses

and to top it off, Lion Brand's pattern for an Irish lace crochet shawl
