Can you remember a few weeks ago when I was crocheting these lovely little colourful flowers from Attic 24? I wasn’t sure at the time what I was actually making them for and just carried on crocheting them as I was enjoying it. Would you like to see what I did with them?
Well ~ I decided that I would have a go at the Japanese art of Amigurumi and eventually made this little flower pot. I have to admit that it took me quite a few attempts because I didn’t realise that you had to work in spirals and not in rounds ~ if that makes any sense! It was frogged a few times and I very nearly gave it up as a very bad job. However, once I got the hang of it I found it fairly easy to do and it does work up very quickly too. Once I had made the flower pot all I had to do was attach the flowers and I ended up with this lovely little flower arrangement which I love.
Now, anybody that knows me well will be aware that I am not renowned for my green fingers ~ all the gardening is done by my lovely husband who is helped (although I’m not sure if that is the right word to use!) by one small boy. The good thing about these little flowers is that they don’t need any green fingered skills and will sit happily on my window sill looking pretty without the need for constant care and attention from me! :O)
