Mum Loves Crochet

 Morning all.  We have a new challenge today over at Cardz4galz and, with Mother's Day creeping ever closer - at least here in the UK, we want to see your 'Mother's Day' projects please.  I love my mum loads and, when I think of her, she's always got a ball of wool in her hand.  For years we would joke with the grandkids that if they'd grown out of their school jumpers they just needed to stand in front of their Mamma until she'd knitted them another.  Nowadays, her passion is crochet - it grows faster than knitting apparently.  Before lockdown she even taught a class over at the local pub on a Wednesday night.  She's been trying to teach me for years but I never seem to have the same number of stitches at the end of a row as the number I started with.

I've been looking for a crochet stamp for ages and I found a sweet clip art set over on Etsy by an artist called Digikika. I coloured one of the images (I think I should get a couple of birthday cards out of this set before I'm finished) and mounted it on some designer paper.  I also used a knit effect embossing folder on some fun foam to create the main panel. I think it pretty much says exactly what I want it to say.

Please pop over and see what the design team have for us.  We'd love you to join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.
