My friend Safron’s favourite colour is green, and when I offered to crochet her something she asked for flowers in different shades of green that she could play with; to make into brooches etc.
I turned to my crochet magazine archive for pattern inspiration, and also made up another few simple flowers…
I’m looking forward to seeing what Safron makes with her flowers.
(Did you spot the one that looks like a cauliflower?!)
In other news: Guess what?
Prachi’s bag has arrived and she was delighted with it!
“Let me start with a big big HUG and THANK YOU for the lovely, lovely bag you made for me…it’s so beautiful, and already the envy of my colleagues! My apologies that you had to wait for so long and get worried about it not turning up…I guess it did take a while to reach, but due to some last-moment work plans I too have been out of the area for about 10 days now……Been very swamped with work lately, so this present has not only made my day but my week and month! It’ll hold my everyday items nicely and will be ideal for walks around town…love that I can knot up the strap and adjust it according to my need, very funky touch that is…and the colours are gorgeous…Rachel, you’re one talented lady, and prompt and super-thoughtful on top of that :) :) :).”
SOoOo glad it finally got to Prachi and most importantly that she liked it. :-D
That bucket of green yarns is just full of wonderful possibilities!
Have you seen ‘100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet’ by Leslie Stanfield? It has an amazing collection of crochet and knitted flowers. I was almost tempted to buy it.
I have, it might have to go on my Christmas wishlist!
