So excited to share this!  I've been working on it for a few weeks now, having made a prototype, then frogged it, then made a new prototype, and finally this version.  The rainbow is a crocheted granny spiral, and the clouds are crocheted appliques.  The rain is crystal teardrop beads and glass seed beads strung onto beading wire.  The metal hoop is 14 across, and there are 12 colors of yarn in the spiral.



The clouds were crocheted from Buttercream Luxe, in white, and the rainbow from a mix of Caron Simply Soft, Vanna's Choice, Lion Brand Heartland, Bernat Satin, Red Heart Soft Solids, and Red Heart Super Saver. The Granny Spiral pattern costs $1, and can be found HERE:  The Cloud Appliques pattern can be found HERE.







I hope everyone's spring is starting to look brighter after the long winter we've had.

I really love the way this looks like a raincloud and a rainbow at the same time!  It brings a cheerful note to rainy weather!  The colors and construction are very beautiful, and mesmerizing!

Now that is just gorgeous! The spiral rainbow and clouds are fabulous, but what I really like is the bead rainfall, which makes it super special in my eyes.  Awesome work!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
