Bloomin' Marvelous


So what do you do when your husband is on night shift, do you:

a. do some much needed book work
b. finish off some works in progress
c. watch tv followed by an early night in bed


Noooooooo, you have lots of fun making little ickle crochet flowers!  Are they not just the cutest thing ever!

Being new to crochet  these are the first thing I have made all by myself following a pattern, which I found here.   Now do not look to closely as some of them have 6 petals rather than the correct 5 and the cotton yarn splits ever so easy, but I love them all the same......




So what do I do with them now, apart from arrange them in pretty colours.....


and add buttons from my stash........



Well Lucy from Attic 24, made hers into the prettiest of brooches, so I am definately going to do that, all be it, I just couldn't master the crochet leaves, so mine will have felt ones.  Poppy has her eye on the pink ones, so I am going to add them to some hair clips and the rest...well I think I'll just sit and admire.

Have a fab weekend!
