They are all great but the one I made and liked the most was the month of March Mother’s Day pot of flowers, I framed mine I had made the flowers with lace and looks fabulous.



I must say I´ve loved all the different projects this year, and so has my 2 granddaughters, who just love to come here and craft too, and they always ask, if there´s any new things from your blog, when they arrive, so they can see, if there´s something, they have to try.
