Crochet Flowers

I adore all the crochet flowers that are out and about in scrapbooking stores and on peoples altered items and much that I thought I would try making some myself!

I dug through all of my crafting stuff and found a big box of yarn, needles, patterns and crochet hooks! My aunt Noreen has sent them to me as they were my grandmothers, who was a very talented artist in all ways. As I was one of the only grandchildren that ever learned how to crochet and knit, I got them! Some are super vintage and beautiful! My Grandma Ina taught me how to knit when I was about 10 years old. From there I started making mittens for all my friends...oh she had such great patience with me!

From there I learned how to crochet and made a huge affgan for my boyfriend at the time (now husband)!!! A red and white one - to match his favorite team the Detroit Red Wings of course. But now I have a better use for my semi talent of crocheting...FLOWERS! There are some great tutorials out there and if you are interested, check out this one here. Roxanne, a very talented scrapbooker and good friend sent this to me yesterday...and the flowers are amazing! Good luck everyone! I will show you some of my creations soon!
