Springtime Butterflies

A little glimpse into how my mind works.
It can be a scary place.
I am sure most of you are the same way,
so you should understand.
Time and Day;
9:30 Saturday morning.
Place:
Church Kitchen
Activity:
Making coffee for Ladies Bible Study

Scenario:
The first pot of coffee does not work. Honestly, I make coffee every day, but something about the coffee pot, the water..whatever, it does not work and it takes FOREVER to make it so while I am waiting for the second pot, I look over and see these crocheted butterflies on the refrigerator.
In the trance of staring and thinking of what all I am going to do with my day later.
Bad Habit,
I know,
but,
I had a sick husband,
I had to get groceries,
meet with a customer,
make some deliveries,
print a shirt for a customer,
do a little cleaning,
other misc. odds and ends,
all before the boys arrived for a sleepover.
So,
back to the butterflies.
Everything goes out of my head and I think....
Wouldn't those be cute crocheted out of pearl cotton,
I haven't crocheted anything in so long,
they would be cute on hair barrettes,
or
pinned to a pillow
or
on a flower pot
or
anywhere,
really
I need to try some of those,
I have pearl cotton somewhere
and I have a little crochet hook
and oh yeah,
how about some little beads for the body and head,
wonder where I put that gold wire?

Wait!!!!

The coffee is ready and it is time for Bible Study,
clear out everything else!
 At any rate, it was Sunday until I could try any of these.
Not really sure what I am going to do with them,
but they are fun to make.
Google crocheted butterflies if you want a pattern,
I can't find the pattern that I used.
I can tell you that I used a #7 steel hook.



One more rolling bunny painting.
JWS thinks it is a little weird.
Maybe it is.

And
I added some items to the giveaway.

Almost there!

Cathy, I sure love reading your blog! Your mind works alot like mine. (scarey, I just admitted that!) I think we all do the same thing though.
The butterflies are sweet and would look really cute in a little girls hair!
I made one, mind you ONE of the bunnies last night and when I showed my hub what I was making he gave me a funny look and asked me what it was supposed to be! Men!
Hope you have a great day.
Hugz,
Sheila

Don't all creative minds do the bunny hop? LOL
I love these butterflies and I know I have a pattern for some somewhere but have never seen the bead/wire bodies and simply love them. I have to try some...can I possibly squeeze it in yet this week?
I just love your blog. You are inspiring. Thanks for sharing!

I don't think the bunny is weird at all! Very cute, very prim, and you did an excellent job on it!
