my mother and one of my brothers are celebrating their birthdays.
for my mother, i crocheted covers for glass vases with pink kalanchoes. actually i wanted to use white orchids which i had grown from seeds, but those plants are only 3 cm high at this moment. too tiny. for the covers i have used this pattern, i only made the center differently and for the upper part of the glass, i ad some extra chains evenly spread.
for my brother who has become 50 years, i crocheted a cushion cover made of 50 blue denim granny squares. an extra square for the coming year i have sewn on the cover like a little pocket.
