Running out of weekend


My weekend has gone by so fast...I feel like I accomplished very little.  It is spring here on my side of the pond and with it comes hay fever so I am under house arrest for the next few weeks.  Lucky for me I have a well stocked craft room to keep my hands and mind busy!!  I wanted to test out my rosebud pattern that I had floating around in my head.....and they look something like this.





 So I have created a "small" and a "large" rosebud, by using different sized crochet threads.  The one on the left is done in a 3-4ply thread and the is #8 crochet cotton



   I also made these 5 petal daisies, well I call em daisies...


Armed with my crochet buds n daisies I decided to try making a flower spray or two....I saw these sprays over at IAMROSES and was totally inspired to go make some.  Here are my attempts with the limited supplies I had on hand...I have used some of my crochet flowers, green silk ribbon, some florist wire that I managed to find at the cheap shop in my town and some stamen from my flower stash.  I sure hope my take on the flower sprays









Now I am off to buy some more supplies....like stamen...florist tape....wire.....leaves.....mmmmm lets see what else??? 

Thank you all so much for looking...PLEASSE please leave a comment I really would love some feedback on these.....hugs to you all
much love and blessings

  1. Kimibee, I just love your crocheted flowers! They are lovely and I like the way you put them together in a spray. That would make a gorgeous accent on a mini album cover or a card focal. Thanks for sharing! Cindy Hoffmann Smith
