Delicate crochet Flowers....

Gosh, this week has gone by quickly! It has been really busy at work and much has happened. I am hoping for a quiet weekend but more on that tomorrow.

You may remember a couple of months ago that I crocheted my first scarf and with any remaining bits of wool I had a go at crocheting some flowers. I used a child's kit to get me started. I have made flowers before but it was along time ago.

Then whilst on holiday in August, I bought some cotton yarn to make some dish clothes and again with any left overs made some more flowers. I really liked these because they are so soft and kept their shape so much better than ordinary wool. I have plans to do more with this idea for Christmas.

Whilst looking for something else I stumbled onto some thick DMC thread and some white coton perle. I have a very fine crochet hook 1.75. A cute little metal silver hook which I really like but have never used since I repaired a friends lacey top with it, so my mind started thinking. After a little bit of fiddling and wishing I had stronger glasses I ended up with this....

Made from the coton perle, it measures approx 3.5cm and has a lace look about it. Again, the shape is kept well and I really like the way it turned out.

Not sure why this picture has flipped round but never mind.

I have made more of these which are shown above in one sitting and I have decided to make sets of the flowers and put them in my Folksy shop, which has seen a few sales recently which has been fun. I love wrapping the parcels up. I have made some different shapes and tried new colours but I can not find the pics, so I shall post about them tomorrow.

I shall also be doing a blog post of an email interview I did with an Etsy Seller which I shall be posting this weekend. Sophie has her first party invitation of the term tomorrow so a couple of house to work on the house. We have started another building project which will keep us busy for months I reckon, oh goody goody!

Take care xx

Love the flowers.

Crochet is the one think I can't do. Loads of people have tried to teach me and failed

Love and hugs Gina xxx
