Learning to make Crochet Flowers....

Last weekend I took a cup of tea, my laptop, crochet hook and some of my white cotton yarn and went to bed! usually I like to read before I put the light out but just lately knitting or crocheting with my last cup of tea has been more preferable.
The above flowers were made using a tutorial on Youtube and I really hope that the link works. take a look as it is ideal for beginners. The flower on your right was made using a 6mm hook which I think ended up with a slightly better shape.

In the right hand margin on Youtube there are many other links to crochet tutorials, many of them for making flowers. The above flower was made following another of the tutorials and what i really liked about them was i could click the pause button if I could not keep up or if I made a mistake. I used bright pink coton perle again for this little flower.

I even had a go at making my own daisies using yellow and white coton perle and my very fine 1.75mm hook. I am really enjoying making these flowers. I have settled for making some simple flowers using the white cotton yarn with the idea of using them to decorate a bag for be very patient and make a shawl!!
I have been to an Embroiderers Guild AGM today but more on that once I have uploaded the pictures.
Lovely weather here today, why could it have not been like this in August?
Take care

I love your crochet flowers - really pretty! I am sure it's really not that easy - particularly with that fine thread.
