well, obviously i'm going to dedicate this post to my sister. it's going to be pretty obvious for her just by reading the title, but i thought i would put it out there just to be sure. it was her birthday last week, so again, a big happy birthday to my little sis. i went to see her and give her some presents and ended up with a present for myself. you see, she has taken an interest (again) in knitting and crocheting lately and has been making all kinds of wonderful things like scarves, beanies, sweaters and whatnot. she's quite handy and talented. you'd never guess in a million years she's a software developer chick. well, she had made all these colored crochet flowers and so i asked her to make a couple more red ones that we could put together for a necklace. we tried out several placements for the flowers and when we were happy with the result she sowed them together. when i got home i altered an old chain necklace and put the flowers on it and... voilà! i really wanted it to stand out so i wore it with a stripped shirt, red pleated skirt and floral tights.
