Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere

These pics are of Moms doing. She made 180 small crochet flowers for centerpieces for the conference.

She was inspired by a pattern, but then made modifications herself. To go along with the flowers, she made backs to hide the "mechanics" and leaves. So, that's 540 crocheted items. Busy bee, wasn't she?

Eat Your Veggies. Now.

I finally am able to put up a picture of the garden veggies I made for the conference. The only exception are the carrots, which Mom made.

This display was in front of the podium at the head table.

The cauliflower and the bumblebee are my own design. Everything else was borrowed from Alan Dart (ladybugs); Corn and Tomatoes, with some slight variations, from Garden Variety via MagKnits; Small Onion by Catherine Lindsay; and the Pumpkin by Magenta Lizard
