More crochet flowers


I’ve made these flowers with felt backs so that you can sew them onto cushions or bags etc. Or if fabric isn’t your thing, and you favour your glue gun, then you can stick them to picture frames or journal covers.

I’m offering them at £1.50 for a set of two. Other colours available on request.

Folksy Shop now open!

Exciting news: my Folksy Shop is now open. I will be adding lots of new things over the next weeks and months. 

If you would like to visit my shop, please click here.

The main focus of my shop will be crochet although I will be making my papercrafts available too. 

The first item for sale is my very popular flower bag charm. Available in a variety of colours and made to order. The charm could also be used as a keyring and comprises of a double sided flower with leaves.

The flowers can also be made as pins, added to hairbands or supplied without backing for use in appliqué etc.  

My unfinished wip has been frogged

When I first got back into crochet I was given a bag of wool. Most of it was quite ordinary, apart from that pictured above which really stood out from the crowd. 

I started my first big project. I was going to make a pen case for my promarkers. Then I started more and more projects and my original #wip (work in progress) was lost at the bottom. 

When I found it I didn’t know how to finish it. The original plan I had in my brain was long forgotten. I didn’t want to take it apart either. I thought unpicking it was a sin and only for items with mistakes to be corrected. My work was not a mistake. It travelled to the bottom of the pile again. So did the remainder of the ball of yarn (lost label).

More work followed. Yarn purchased. Value yarn. Plain yarn. Granny squares multiplied. Half finished blankets over knees. 

And then I joined an online crochet group. I discovered that unpicking is allowed. It’s called frogging. I shared the above picture with them together with a plea – what was this yarn called? Oh those clever people knew exactly what it was …. King Cole Splash ….

Oh so happy now! My unfinished wip has been frogged and I’ve bookmarked the yarn on several online stores and messaged my local yarn shop. Watch this space!
