Do you Pin?

I love the concept of Pinterest.
A place to pin (collect) all the great finds from the internet.
Somewhere you can store all the wonderful ideas that you find on the internet and have them at the click of a button. 
No need to have to go back and scour the internet for that one idea that you found ~ Now where did I find that at??

I don't pin because I just don't have the extra time to do it. I'm doing good if I can find enough time to check my email and blog here and there. But the good thing and what I love, Love, LOVE about Pinterest is the fact that others can share their pins with us.
If they provide the link then you can view all their great finds.
So me, being the Pinterest "slacker" that I am finds this extrememly helpful.
It's how I found my next project that I hope to work on over the long and cold winter.
Linda over at Prairie Flower Farm shared this pin on her Pinterest and I loved it the minute I saw it. It didn't have a link included as to where I could find a pattern but it did have a pattern name so I just typed in crocheted african flowers on my internet search and wahla...the pattern.

Crocheted African Flowers *Click to go to the pattern!*

I love the pinks and greens but was unable to find enough variety of those shades in our local stores so I picked purples and greens instead.
So far, I've only crocheted one flower but I'm in no rush. I've got all winter to work on it.

Hope you all are having a great week and getting to enjoy the cooler temps. like what we are having here!

Yes, I've seen Pinterest and got an invite, but decided not to get involved since I really don't need another computer "thing" to take away my treasured time. I love blogging and emailing and will stick to that. :)
Your crocheted flowers are going to be lovely! I like pink/green and lavender/green. In fact, I have a sampler quilt I've been working on for ages that is purple/green.

Took me a little bit of time, but I figured out Pinterest and really like it. I have a button on my blog for anyone else who would like to see my pins. Great place to "save" recipes and craft ideas.
