Crochet Motif: Weeping Willow Square

Weeping Willow Square




Each of the VVCAL 2018 Squares were dedicated to a tree by one of the members of my CypressTextiles Tree Huggers Facebook group.

The Weeping Willow Square was named by Debbie Zaslona, Tamika N Shaun Simpson, Julie Goers, Juanita Carol, Tania Leis, Ashley Tavner, Lea Beaumont, Tiffany Santos, Cassandra Bibler, Donna Bird, Jane Kelly, Glenda Ramage, Georgine Frederix, and Annette Stokes. Thank you all.
