  • Jacqui

    Hi Noreen Ive been wondering how you are. You are butterfly mad no one does butterflies like you do darl. The earrings are cute and no I don’t want to win them I just want to say gday!

  • http://karensdollsandstuff.blogspot.com Karen Mallory

    Lovely butterflies to remind us that spring is somewhere even if it is hidden for now! I thought that working with the wire made your hands sore. What a treasure to win something you made Noreen even if it hurts!
    hugs Karen

    I love butterflies. :)

    The earings look great, and just the sort of thing I’d love to give to my Mum! I don’t crochet, but I’d love be able to do something like this! You really are an inspiration, Noreen, so thank you so much for sharing this with us, and I’m sure whoever wins these earings will love them to bits.

  • Jenny W. in MD

    I love handmade goodies!! Your butterflies are precious and I know a little girl that would love to wear them when her ears get a little bigger and her mom (me) hands them down to her. After this contest, will you be posting instructions?

    Thank you for your generosity and kind-heart.

    Good morning, Noreen! What beautiful, delicate, adorable butterflies!!! Perfect for the spring! My Daughter #1 is expecting my first grandbaby (and she lives 3 hours away), and daughter #2 is “throwing” her an outdoor shower at my house (she lives in Florida, we’re in Ohio). Daughter #2 decided on a cute bug theme, and butterflies are going to be flying all over! In the garden, on the fence, huge butterflies, all the way down to little butterflies on the tables. Your butterflies would be just perfect in the new mom-to-be’s ears! What a cherished reminder of her baby shower! Pick me, pick me!!!
