Flowery circles

First of all I'd like to say Thank you all so much for your very lovely birthday wishes and also for all the purple woolly boot love ~ your comments were all very much appreciated indeed :O) xx


This week I have been playing around a bit with all the little crochet flowers that I had made recently ~ I have had this idea whirling about in my head for a little while now and have finally had the time and the inclination to actually do what had to be done to get it made.


And here we have it! and I LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it!!


A pretty little flowery circle of woolly loveliness just waiting to be hung up somewhere that needs to be prettied up a little bit. It works along the same principle as the little button hearts that seem to be quite popular at the moment. I thought that if you could thread buttons onto craft wire then it would be fairly easy to add something as pretty as a little crochet flower into the mix too.


I really do have to say that I am very happy indeed with the resulting flowery circle and I can definitely see a lot more of these little woolly circles being made in lots of different colours and I also think that they would make rather wonderful little Mothers Day gifts too.

It looks very pretty hanging up in all manner of places ~ I know this because I have been going around the house and the garden this morning hanging it on door handles, windows, beds, drawers, garden gate latches and once I had made sure there were no neighbours looking I hung it on the holly tree just to see how it looked there too!



This blogging lark makes you even more mad than you actually thought you were to start with! I'm quite sure that there is a few of you that will agree with me on that one :O) xx

That little wreath is just fabulous! The colours you've used remind me of the primroses that you see everywhere at the moment - pots to be bought for Mothering Sunday or to go in planters by the front door. What a lovely spring-like make!

That's a great idea! I've just recently crocheted a few flowers and was wondering what to do with them, now I know! Loved the story of the photo sheet too.

Oh it's wonderful! Lovley colours,just right for Spring. Can I nick your idea and make one too?!
I got some wire off ebay, a shop that had several different thicknesses and I got one that was too thick for buttons but would be perfect for this!x

Your flowery wreath is beautiful. If only I had the patience for crochet!
