FLOWER FRENZY...

So many flowers to play with, they will cover joins and spaces in the blanket just so many options...

how things grow and change...
From original basic flower, too....
I have a several bags of flowers to play with from teeny tiny to huge multi layered blooms.
There are plenty to fill those awkward gaps.
The layout of the giant bed spread to come, not got the energy today to clear the craft table.

BBC FILMING YESTERDAY....
Had a lovely day yesterday at the craft centre. It was great to meet Barbara and her friends and to see her fantastic crochet....GOOD LUCK with the competition Barbara. 
Looking forward to the programme, Barbara thought it will be in the Autumn some time. 

Hugs to all x

    1. Hi Ruth
      Thanks, no the book is a beginners book, based mainly on Granny motifs and done to a strict brief, as they asked me to write it.
      But let me know which flower you like and I will do a pattern for you?

    1. Hi Angélique, a beginners book on Granny Motifs, quite a strict brief as they asked me to do it, may be the next book will be a more advanced book full of flowers and freeform ideas. lol

      It is due out in early 2013, all being well the published wanted it ready for the shows in the Spring
      Quite excited now all the hard work has been completed, I just get a bit of editing to do now.
      Can't wait to see it myself all I know is it is going to be a square (well almost)shape

  11. Re patterns for your flowers and your comments to Ruth. I would just say as many patterns as possible pretty please. The sunflower is lovely but then so are all the rest. Will the leaf patterns follow too. Aren't we cheeky asking for patterns of your creations LOL
