Stash Busting Sunday: Needles & Yarn & Mini Flowers

A friend and I learned about a new yarn store when we attended International Crochet Day at Sadu House earlier this month.
We were finally able to make our way there last weekend.
A cute little shop filled to the brim with yarn and yarny inspiration.
The little framed clothesline with twigs for posts, teeny tiny little clothespins and crocheted clothes was my favorite.  Absolutely adorable!
I picked up two books.
Some project bags.
And, of course, I couldn't walk out of there without a couple of balls of yarn.
I'm thinking scarves.
But have no fear, I am still stashbusting.
 Using the bits leftover from my doilies and dishcloths, I am making mini flowers.
Maya shares the pattern on her blog Little Treasures.
For more stash busting, visit Linda's Crafty Corner.
Best wishes,

Dearest Tammy,
Indeed that clothesline is very cute! The peace dove is special too and so are the other pieces... There is so much to admire that it almost makes your head spin!
Glad you enjoyed it and came away with fresh ideas and with new material.
Enjoy your tiny flowers.
Hugs,
