Crochet Mom a Bouquet This Year!

During May, I just want to be surrounded by flowers! Are you the same? Unfortunately, I have the opposite of a green thumb and can manage to kill the hardiest of plants. Step in crochet. When I need a burst of color, I like to crochet a bouquet of flowers to brighten my room. They make a great gift, and as a mom myself, I would love a bouquet of crocheted posies for Mother's Day! One of my favorite patterns is the Blossom Posy. It has all the 3-D texture without any hassle!
