My new crochet painting: Mom’s Mont Blanc

My mom is really into a dessert called the Mont Blanc, which is a chestnut-flavored pastry resembling and named after the highest mountain in the Alps.

I decided to crochet her a little painting for her Christmas/Birthday present with three mont blancs on a cake stand. As per usual, I thought it would be funny to show you the sketch I used to map everything out.

montblancpairSorry about the terrible flash photography! I finished this right before we went to her birthday dinner, and there was no more sunlight for a good photo.

MontBlancIt’s kind of hard to see in the photo, but I used a fun gold thread with sequins to decorate the cake stand as well as at some fun sparkle stars to the background. Hopefully I’ll remember to bring my camera to my parents’ house one day to get a nicer picture!

    I love your stuff, Twinkie! Are you doing more patterns for Michaels?

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! My partnership with Michaels was only for 2013. I might do the occasional pattern for them for special promotions, but it won’t be monthly like last year.
