Crochet Flowers

Hello friends its been a while!
Sorry for my absence in blogging,
 but my health has had other ideas and kept me away sadly.
I've not been idle though, far from it,
 you can always find me on
 most days, to see whats on my hook!

I thought you'd like to see the gorgeous flowers I've been making recently,
 as this is something quite different and great fun!

 which in all honestly is the easiest flower pattern I've ever used.

You can buy this pattern

 and then push the knitting needle through the middle.

The flowers are best made in cotton yarn.

These flowers are now for sale in my

Other news
 is that I've been doing a lot of work here behind the scenes,
 making some updates to my blog. To tidy it up
 and make it easier for you to find things,
 I have 2 new pages for 
 You can find the pages list on the top right of the blog.
I do hope this makes life easier for you and gives you much pleasure.

Next I will be working on a page for Colour Recipes
so watch this space!

Wishing you all a happy hooky day
