I've made this necklace; and it was postively simple and easy to do. I changed out and used ribbon for the necklace part but will make more with different colored flowers as I positively love the design and how it wears!
Thank you so much for sharing your gift : )

I can't wait to make this for my daughters!


I love this pattern.

Cherry Blossoms

I have a parent who comes in to volunteer in my kindergarten classroom. Her name is Lilly and she is from Japan. She has friends in Japan in the area that was affected by the devastation. I am going to try to make this for her but only have four days until school is out! Wish me luck.
