My last Ta-Dah....of 2010
Thank you for all your kind comments on my flower post.
It's another grey day outside today, but lets not talk about that cos I've got some crochet to share with you today , yay. But first a bit of build up!
Blog land is such fantastic inspiration, don't you agree. Back in November I saw this lovely post. Wow, crochet pictures, I'd never even thought of that.
So whilst I was on my Charity shop travels I picked up a suitable frame for a couple of quid.
Then I got a bit stuck , unsure of what to do .
Luckily Lucy came to my rescue earlier this week. She had a link to the designer Jane Fosters site and I was particularly impressed with her flower pictures.
They are so pretty , deceptively simple , but there is just something about them I really liked .
Then I had a light bulb moment...hurrah... I could do something similar in crochet.
Yay , yay , yay. I quickly ran to my stash and rooted around till I found this ...
Patons smoothie in a gorgeous shade of blue , Perfect !
Then I was like a woman possessed , puzzling out how to make a pretty flat flower, a stem and leaves.
About an hour later it was finished ......
What do you think! I'm really chuffed with how this turned out :0)
Taken from some lovely blogy inspiration but an original Bunny Mummy make !
I would be happy to write a pattern out for this project if anyone would like to have a go at one of these.
I even got to add the date 2010........just.....
I'll leave you with a little peek an my next big project, one that won't be finished till well into the new year , more of this soon :0)
Have a great New Years Eve . Here's to 2011, hope it is a good one for all of us with lots of happy family times,crochet, craftiness , and blogging :0)
