This beautiful crocheted rose was delivered to me yesterday. My Aunt Connie made it and sent it to me. I am waiting (impatiently) for the pattern, so that I can make some too. I think it is brilliant. She is making them to sell as a fund raiser to benefit a local organization against domestic abuse. My Aunt and my Grandmother were my crafting inspirations when I was a child and my Aunt still amazes me with the beautiful creations she makes.
