Downton Abbey Inspired Crochet Flower Brooch

I don’t know about you, but I was captivated with the season (3) premiere of Downton Abbey last night! Every Sunday we have planned to not only watch, but to share the experience with our good friends who will be joining us. What fun we will have! And naturally, I decided to name this pretty cream brooch “Lady Mary”. Click the picture for more information. Blessings from Alaska! ~Jackie

Missing in ACTION

Hi Friends,

Sorry I’ve been missing in action, but it’s true – I’ve been creating again.  🙂 Here are a few of the goodies I’ve been crocheting lately.  {And this weekend I have 7 brooches to create for some Mother’s Day orders – yippee!}

Blessings, Jackie

P.S. I decided to link up with Tater Tots & Jello’s Weekend Wrap Up Party again. Check out all the cool stuff over there! {click on button below}

Having fun adding some new center pieces to my brooches.

One of my new favorite yarns.

Lovely daughter modeling a light and airy, knitted teal cowl.

Another brooch using denim.

Crocheted houndstooth cowl. This one is time consuming, but rewarding.

Crochet Flower Brooch Tutorial Coming Soon…

Right now I am supporting some loved ones with medical issues, but soon I will post a tutorial for this cheerful brooch that I just added to my Etsy shop. I had fun making this upcycled denim & crochet flower brooch from a pair of my son’s old jeans. Can’t help but feel like I’ll be carrying around a little bit of his childhood when I wear it. ❤

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a blessed day.

Joyfully, Jackie

I came up with a simple yet surprising way to make this brooch. Tutorial coming soon...

Here's another view. This brooch measures 4" x 4".

Weekend Wrap Up Party at Tatertots & Jello! :)

My sister-in-law, Christine, invited me to participate in this fun blog party!  The idea is to “show off your great ideas”.  How nifty!  As some of you know, I’ve been crocheting like crazy this winter so I think I’ll post a crochet creation.  Imagine that!  😉  Here is one of my flower brooches.  I hope you like it!  Joyfully, Jackie
