Apple Blossom Dreams | Apple Blossom Season | Post 15 | The Last of this Series

    Apple Blossom Season - Post 15:

Since apple blossom season is going on in so many parts of the world, 
it spurred on an idea to create a string of apple blossom posts. 

😉🍎🌸🍃

This is the fifteenth (and today is the 15th!) and final installment of this series. 😮

Oh gosh, can you imagine, as I look around our home and root around in my belongings,
 all that is apple blossom-related? 
It's possible that the posts can go on until well after the petals fall. 😉

Since this is the last installment I thought it would be a good time 
to write a little bit about the how and why of apple blossoms and dreams in my life.
These are the first apple blossoms I crocheted in 2011 when I started
Apple Blossom Dreams.
This pattern is by Lesley Stanfield and can be found

I used a 100% cotton yarn from Greece that I purchased at
my LYS, The Wool Cabin. I remember accompanying my mother 
to this shop as a young lady. She would purchase Dale Baby Wool from Norway
 and knit away. Sadly, the shop has closed but the memories are still intact.

I named my blog and later my shop Apple Blossom Dreams,
because I lived on Apple Blossom Lane.
Apple Blossom Lane is also where many of my dreams came true.

The dream of owning a home as a single mother,
the dream of raising my daughter in a good home with a stable environment,
the dream of meeting a good man to share dreams together,
and last but not least,
the dream of starting and building a crochet pattern business.

A great BIG thank you to you, my followers and friends, for your
role in helping the latter come true!
🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸

We no longer live on Apple Blossom Lane,
but that street and those dreams are still alive and well.
As a reminder of where and when it all started,
I have saved and displayed those first crocheted apple blossoms:
Here they are in the Apple Blossom Dreams studio/guest room.
Our poor visitors are inundated with apple blossoms, as you can imagine.

So that is how it began and how it continues...

🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸
 
As this is the last installment of this series, it by no means indicates 
an end to future apple blossom posts, as I am sure you may have already suspected.
😉

Please continue to stay tuned for a little of this and a little of that, 
and maybe some apple blossoms here and there.


Wishing you 
and many happy apple blossom moments!

Warmly,

Astri
