  14. I have been looking for granny square roses to crochet for some time now and I finally found this link! These roses are absolutely beautiful!! I want to crochet a yellow rose bedspread to present to my daughter for her high school graduation in memory of her Grandma. My Mother passed away November 17, 1998 from lymphoma and yellow roses were her favorite flower. What do I have to do to participate in the CAL? Or is it possible to send me the pattern so I can get started? I look forward to hearing from you. Cheryl ;-)

  15. Hello Maggie and Cheryl. So glad you will be joining the CAL.

    I will be posting every Tuesday so that there is plenty of time in between posts to prepare for the next step.

    Cheryl - what a lovely gift for your daughter! Please email me at digger.lizzie@gmail.com and I will send you the information to get started and then you could email me any questions.
