81  Mother Love Seed Envelopes 4 Designs Free Printable Download in Mother's Day by Maria Merlino on: April 26, 2011 12:11:10 PM

On Mother's Day, I give out seeds in honor of my dearly departed mother. The seed is the symbol of life and by planting soon pretty flowers will emerge and remind us of the beauty of life. Cut, fold on black lines, use glue stick to adhere. There are 4 designs, 2 per page. I print the images on the Draft setting. This is the setting where you are saving ink. I don't mind the faded image because it is more stable on the thinner copy paper. Too much bleed through causes wrinkles and wastes ink. The images are a Mother banner, an urn of roses with a flying bird, a crescent moon with rose, and a double rose oil painting.

Here are the seed packets:

83  Rooster Gift Scrapbooking Tags for dear old Dad--->Free printable in Father's Day by Maria Merlino on: April 25, 2011 04:22:47 AM

I'm having fun making tags! Here are some vintage roosters that you can use for Father's Day Gift tags.
Two horizontal and 2 vertical tags. Images are Rooster in Tux singing with hen on piano, Rooster family, Rooster Head Master, and an antique playing card with a rooster and one heart. I buy index card weight paper at my local office supply.I also use an inexpensive paper trimmer, the flat kind, not the guillotine type, to cut them apart.

85  Giant Long Stem Rose Scarf---->Free Link included! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: April 22, 2011 06:59:15 AM

Why buy a rose for mother when you can make her one to wear around her neck?
This rose is made with no sewing but has 3 parts to it. First you make the Irish Leaf, then the, hollow tube and finally a hyperbolic bloom. It's really not difficult at all as I have a photo tutorial linked to the pattern.

Pattern is here:

If you want to give a looky at the pictures, here they are:

89  Flower Child's Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by Maria Merlino on: April 18, 2011 06:50:53 AM

Back of sweater

Front of Sweater with the hyperbolic flower buttons

I found a free pattern by the Double Stitch Twins on the Red Heart website called, Flower Child's Sweater. It called for Smoothie yarn. Not in my stash! I did have several balls of Red Heart Stripes. And since the pattern used several different colors, the Stripes yarn was perfect. I made a design change also. Originally, the front closures had ties. I wanted crocheted buttons instead. The way the pattern was written, both front edges had these oversized buttonholes, but the edges did not meet in the center. I added extra rows, worked just one side of buttonholes and on the other side crocheted flowers to act as the buttons. I also changed the collar. I have a 2 page article with my notes and a also a photo slideshow and a link to the original pattern. If you like, you can read it here:
