A Floral Bouquet

With  loads of magazine commissions on the go and two Learn to Crochet classes booked, life is more than a little hectic just now. By the time we sit down after tea, all I can bring myself to make are these tiny flowers (the pattern is one I use on my learn to crochet workshop and it’s very simple). So far I’ve made 50 of the darn things, I just can’t stop! I’ve promised myself, once the yarn runs out, that’s it. I’m moving on to a ripple cushion, I hear a lovely reader has made one from Nicki Trench’s Cute and Easy Crochet book using Noro Kogorashi and I’m very tempted to follow suit.

Now, back to these flowers – suggestions please – what shall I do with them??? If no-one comes up with anything better, there will be a bunch of people getting floral corsages for Christmas this year!

  1. You could put them on green florist wires to make flowers, then make an arrangement with dry oasis. Or sew them on to a plain sweater or cardigan

  2. Hee hee! Oh how you make me smile. I’m surrounded by mini piles of triangular and flowery bunting. Lovely to hook on a hot summers day, hence my expanding pile! How many more of us have secret piles of makes waiting to be transformed?

  • Gonna get dirt under my fingernails, sctratched by rose thorns & probably break a nail or two - but I don't care! First photo shoot for new book is done & now I have six weeks before my hands need to look pretty again! The glamorous life of a crochet designer eh?!?

In a world where you can be anything, be kind, when all you have to offer is time, give it freely and without expecting anything in return.  Remember that compassion is the answer, always and forever. 
Three weeks ago I lost one of my best friends, but I have found solace in these 2 beautiful girls, now women, making their way in the world and knowing that they learned these lessons from the example set by their mothers.
I'm so sorry to everyone who is expecting a reply to an email, a letter or a facebook message. I am doing as much as I can, when I can, but I know I've fallen short of my usual efficiency!!!
