Autumn and spring

Even though today is a dark, dreary, rainy, winter day in Western Pennsylvania-I named this rug Autumn because she contains some autumnal colors like brown and burgandy.  Autumn contains two thrifted sheets and five thrifted t-shirts.  This one crocheted up really quickly because I already had the t-shirts cut up.  I have a big, old, ugly callus on my finger from the using the scissors-ick!

January 26th I brought  a piece of my rhododendron inside for some green for my newly thrifted vase.

Here it is on February 23rd.

And here it is today.  An unintentional force.  I've read about forcing blooms before, but I really had no idea my rhododendron would bloom indoors.  I'm tickled!

I hope you have a good day!

You are becoming a green thumb! Your bloom is lovely and well needed this time of year. Love Autumn!

I love the colors in this one! Cool forcing the bloom! Always wanted to try it too, but I'm terrible at stuff like that.

I followed your lead and made myself a rug -- but I used up about four flat sheets. I think I went too tight with my hooking. It definitely was a work-out. I love your autumn rug, but then I love all of your rugs (you knew that already!).
