Flower Power : Crochet flowers!

 Hello , hello , hello!
My dear readers it’s been a while since I last contacted you  and I’m really EXCITED  today to be back to my little , dear place in blog land and talk to you!
Some days ago, in one of my regular visits to the lovely blogs of talented and creative ladies, I was fascinated by the prettiness and colourful magic of crochet flowers!
  It wasn’t the first time I had come across flowers made of pretty, soft, brightly coloured yarn, but this time, I felt an urge to start crocheting and on a day off work, I spent a few hours creating my little, sweet, darling blooms that made my heart happy and my mind full of ideas about how they could be better used.
I should add here that they are so easy and fun to make that they can be ‘dangerously’ addictive, to an extent that you may end up with little piles of them and still want to make more!!

  The colour combinations are endless and each one has its unique, bright ‘personality’. I used the exact same   pattern for all of them, but each one reminds me of a different kind of ‘real life’ flower: a marigold, a pansy, a rose , a gardenia, a cyclamen , an hibiscus and so many more.

A bunch of happy little fellows that looked so cute that I couldn’t avoid playing with them, decorating wreaths, placing them inside pots , spreading them on a crochet blanket I made some years ago, forming different shapes , combining them with real flowers to get the most of their excessively vibrant colours.

If I had more time, I’m sure I could have found more places for them, to continue this fun , creative game!

 What can I say, no matter how old we are, the kid inside us is ready to play, laugh and have fun and grab a chance for a fun game when she/he comes across one!

Have a fun , carefree , playful week dear friends . Crafting and day dreaming will be your allies to that!
My love to all!!!

    1. Ευχαριστώ Ολυμπία μου. Συμφωνώ πώς το πλέξιμο είναι πολύ χαλαρωτικό και όταν ξεκινήσεις δύσκολα το σταματάς, όλο και κάτι καινούργιο και όμορφο εμφανίζεται στον ορίζοντα για νέες δημιουργίες!
      Καλή σου Κυριακή .
