crochet flower garland

So, you know, I finally decided to get off my backside and do something with these gorgeous crocheted flowers. It was time.  I made them, well I blogged about them, in May last year so yes they have been sitting in a box waiting patiently for their day.

Well their day has come, the waiting is over.

I turned them into a flower garland, no great creative shakes over here today, a garland is about all my baby-mush brain can manage at the moment.

The flower pattern is super easy, and the flowers could be used for all sorts of projects, I think they were originally designed to be appliqués, but I'm not really into the whole appliqué thing - most likely due to the fact that I don't know how or what or indeed why!!! The yarn is Rico Design Essentials Cotton DK - it's quite slim and shiny and makes the 3D of these flowers stand out. Real pretty huh?!

I did however manage some creative appliqué with Betsy's head.

She was not impressed!

Both of us have been full of cold this last week, not helped by the sodding snow.  Yeah, yeah, it's pretty and stuff but it's cold and slippy and I absolutely will not drive in it (after one too many 'stuck in the car on the motorway' moments) and have I mentioned that it's cold. Hmph!
