I made two of these, whew, what a lot of work.
Still, I was glad of being able to sit around and keep my hands busy. These turned out so pretty.
I kept the color palette limited so the design wasn’t too complicated, but with enough variation that the result wasn’t cartoonish.
The variegated purple above worked out terrific; I’m always suspect about why anyone would buy variegated, but I picked up more in other colors for other projects after trying it for this. It makes the color changes in those flowers so simple.
I still don’t know how to crochet, so I picked up some cotton lace at JoAnns to complete the project. Yep, I made TWO of these.
These were taken as a remembrance of how the landscape changes….
The McDonald’s in Laramie had saddle seats for the kids, hee hee.
That’s not a fence, it’s a snow break.
Nebraska. I don’t know what the sign says, but what an entrance. (And no shortage of bugs on that windshield!)
Nebraska has an Oregon, which I found amusing.
A lot of farmland is still underwater, and not planted.
