I got this free tutorial and pattern in my e-mail today. I thought I would share it with you.
Today I have had thread on mind. So many !!! A friend referred me to SuperiorThreads.com … It’s great. A wonderful selection. It turns out that what you despise in fabric is wonderful in thread. Polyester. Everything you ever wanted to know about thread is on their site.
I have been working on more totes. The first one I made I gave to my Mom. She liked the material. I’ll be making another one. I have enough of that material to make another one.
I wish I could find more material that has that metallic thread running through it. It looks good!
That’s all for now.
~ SusanI saw this and had to nab it. Did you ever say something and stop yourself and think, “ I sound like My Mother.”

Mandy's Favorite 5-Petal Flower Pattern
Any size hook (depending on what size flower you want)
Any weight yarn
Rnd 1: Ch 5, join into a ring w/sl st in 1st ch.
Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), work 9dc in ring, join to top of ch w/sl st -- 10 sts.
Rnd 3: **Ch 2, work 3dc in next st, ch 2, sl st in next st** five times. Fasten off.
For a different color center, try changing yarn colors after round 2. Experiment with different weight yarns and hook sizes. To layer a slightly smaller flower on top, go down one hook size from larger flower.
