Now - if you're not familiar with what this is all about, why not pop over to Julia's blog at Stamping Ground and have a look :-)
I have been playing with crochet hooks and various cottons recently and been making some little flowers :-) It keeps my hands occupied in the evenings when I watch tv. I had been making little bunnies, but since Easter has been and gone, I changed to flowers. Don't know what I am going to use them for, but I thought I might send some as little 'gifties' to my more fluffy/floral craftmaking Chums :-)
I started off with a 5 petal design and then I found a pattern for ones that you roll up - and they are cool.
Here's some pikkies anyway :-D .........................
Click on pics to enlarge.
Then an idea came - why not sew one onto the other to make a bigger flower... so I did that as well. :-)
Well - I'm off now to see what other WOYWW - ers have got to show me this week. See ya' xxxxxxxxx
Wow Ike . . . there really is NO END to your creative talents is there?ReplyDelete
I was recently sent 3 pretty flowers from a Blog Friend and I am going to crochet some chain and hang them in a row in a window somewhere.
Hi Ike - thanks for stopping by - I tried crochet - could do the obligatory square - round & round & round... lol but I never really got anywhere. Have a great week Happy WOYWW ... Mxx #67ReplyDelete
Oh how clever, our paws are far too fat for such intricate crafts, so we are in awe.ReplyDelete
Hugs from the bears @#97 this week.
Hi Ike I love your flowers. I have been collecting tons of patterns on my Pinterest but have yet to try one. Yours look lovely especially the rolled ones. Hugs to you from Helen 88ReplyDelete
Clever you.I can't crochet.Maybe one day!!ReplyDelete
When I see little pretties like these it makes me want to learn to crochet! They look great on cards and scrapbook pages... one day I will learn!ReplyDelete
I made myself a promise that before the end of the year I will learn to crotchet. I'm learning to embroider and I'm doing an art course so watch this space.ReplyDelete
Another crotchet blog desk this week. Not a great crotchet person myself but maybe I will give it a go!ReplyDelete
I am not really speaking to you after your comment you left about the warm weather. It is positively freezing here right now! Hurrumpf!
You visit my blog - lovely, thank you very much for stopping by...
So I visit your blog....
And there's me reading your blog at the top before scrolling down, and going at looking at Haunted Design House and then thinking - I like this person. As macabre as I can be. I just lurve the Lil Grumpy's from Smeared Ink....
And I scroll down
and you ...... crochet?
Just like me then......
Super crochet flowers there - and I totally have to agree with Morti, you crochet? A gal of many and very varied talents!ReplyDelete
Happy WOYWW, hugs, Di xx
Ooh, yummy! Could you point me in the direction of the pattern for the rolled up flowers please? It will, of course, be goobledegook to me but my Mum is a crochet whizz and would love to make me some... well, I'm sure she would ;)ReplyDelete
Oh yes certainly - hang fire and I will find it somewhere. I do it all from memory now, but I know I have it saved somewhere !! xxxxDelete
Those flowers are amazing, I can crochet but am self taught, just the basics, I tend to look at something long enough and nut it out. I do like the double pale blue one. What an interesting desk you have this week thanks for sharing it and visiting me, I have enjoyed my visit with you.ReplyDelete
Hugs Eliza & Yoda 48
Forgot to add you must send the link for the flowers especially the rolled one.ReplyDelete
Will do .... as explained above... I will firk this out and when I find it, will pop it through to you xxxxxxxxDelete
Drooling! lol! LOVE your flowers. The red and black mixed ones are gorgeous colors. The roses are amazing too. If you are missing some...it WASn't me. :)ReplyDelete
Happy Wednesday! SueC#109
Hi Ike - I do love a crochet flower! My Mum tried to teach me to make them once but I just couldn't get it! So I'm very envious of such gorgeous blooms. Have a great week and thanks for your visit MMx #114ReplyDelete
I just LOVE your crochet flowers - I see brooches - why not sew a safety pin on the back - they can be as big or as small as you like and they would look so cool. I now want to go and crochet some flowers!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for hopping by my blog - have a great week.
Oh wow, those are really cute Ike. I was only looking at a book in Hobbycraft yesterday with lots of knitted and crocheted flowers in and thinking that I might get my hooks out and have a go.ReplyDelete
Sue @ #42
I love the little crochet items - I have done a little bit of crochet but its not my strong point!!ReplyDelete
those flowers would look good on any crafters project they are amazing and it would be so nice to have those on something like a canvas to add an extra texture and depth to a project, fantastic
Have a great WOYWW today and a fabby week
Ooooh I love the crochet flowers!!! Fab!!ReplyDelete

These are so pretty. I can't crochet so I'm in awe of your skill! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I was out all day so it was a lovely surprise to come back to. Have a lovely creative week. x Julie AnnReplyDelete
Oooh love them! I can crochet, a little, and those would look so awesome on some hairbows or cards or even some necklaces/pendants, well I can think of lots of way to use them, huh? So please put me on the list for a link whenever you find it, huh? Thanks so much! And thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me such a funny comment! :) Deeyll #72ReplyDelete
well done with the crochet ... they make great brooches and decorations for bags, hair etc etc. Thanks for your comment on my beaded box... yes, it is made to a special pattern, you can use either a word map or a diagram which work together.
thanks for sharing
