blue roses and …

when i first made this for the street art component of our wrapped in st marys event, it looked like this –roses are blue - stitchedupmama 2013

then i decided to add red flowers, so now it looks like this –Winner - Open category - Stitchedupmama, St Marys, Tasmania

and guess what?

it won!

if roses are blue, does that mean violets are red?

also, here’s a sneak preview of my current project in progress – a queen anne’s lace scarf using a thick variegated yarn and a 7 mm crochet hook

seems like a weird idea, but somehow it works

based on my flower power crochet

all buttoned up

after i made the key bracelet, i rediscovered some lovely floral wooden buttons that someone had given me

i love buttons and have quite a collection – i think i might be a buttonaholic

these particular ones were just right for the centres of some crocheted flowers

a pink crocheted cord contrasted well with the blue yarn

another button made a great closure

it was fun making this bracelet!
