I must have been really tired when I wrote my last post because when I came home from my weekend away the coffee sleeve looked totally fine. Sometimes we just need a little distance from our work to give it some perspective.

I know April is all about showers, but I lately I have been obsessed with flowers, especially little crocheted ones. I’ve tried a few different patterns, but keep coming back to this one by Mimi. The stem is a simple chain stitch.

Would you like these little flowers for your cup of java?

    Hi Julie! I left a link to your blog on Ravelry, the Unravelers Group. I have a profile on Facebook, but somehow feel too “old” to go there. It took me a year to face a cell phone, now I have a TREO, so I’m making progress!
    Love the cozy!

    Look, I’m lucky I can do the “Comments” thing!

    I used to be on Facebook, but got off because everyone wanted to me my friend. People I didn’t even know. Not so good!

    But…I love the color combo on this coffee cozy. Just wanted to mention that I really like this one. My favorite Spring flower…I love all of them after a long dreary Winter, but I’d have to say it would be “Tulip.”

    Thanks for the reminder tonight! Sorry, but I’m too tired to do more than this. However, my favorite spring flower is the peony. I remember my grandma giving me a gigantic bouquet of them for my senior graduation. I loved them and have had them at every house I’ve lived in (& will continue to do so until forever).

    Cute teacher gift idea. I may need to do that for spring party this week. Hmm, maybe if I win the kiddo will have a nice gift for his teacher. I’ll cross my fingers :)

  6. Hi, I love your blog! I´ve linked your giveaway in my blog´s sidebar. Hope you can send internationally, of course, if I win, LOL! Kisses from Brazil!

    Serious as a heart attack!–I don’t have facebook, blog or twitter—maybe that betrays my age :P’ Anyway, your java sleeve is adorable! I really like the stem going around and blue is the best color in the world. My mug needs a face lift.

    My fav spring flower is the crocus. Winters are always long and bleak for me and when I see the first crocus’ peek their heads out in my flower bed I know spring is just around the corner. It is a boost to my spirits…like a good cup of coffee in the morning. ;)

    Happy Soggy Spring!

    Hi Julie,

    What a dear, sweet little java sleeve! I coordinate Lark’s twitter feed, and I just happily tweeted about your giveaway. Thanks for providing a lovely craft and for citing the pattern designer–rock on, crafting community.

    ps: tulips are my favorite flower :)

    Am I too late? It’s very, very pretty.

  11. Cioci Ingrid says:

    I like all the spring flowers but tulips are my favorite. I reallly want to win this. If I’m correct, it matches my messenger bag and bookmark. I might even be persuaded to change my flower to daisy.

    Uncle Roger has a whole box of shredded tax papers. He casually mentioned that he bet Julie could do something with them. Sorry, Julie tomorrow is paper recycling.
