crocheting flowers

This time of year my fingers start itching to crochet. Right now, these flowers, or stars maybe, are the only thing I want to make.

My inspiration is here and here, and this is where you can find this very simple pattern. The pink and aqua ones are ready to be sent to two new friends. Now I am starting a couple for me, using some favorite colors.

I also made an oatmeal one for my partner in the mug rug swap I mentioned earlier on in the week.

Alrighty, I'm off to crochet me some stars.
xoxo, A

How cute are those! I've never seen anything like that before. I should make one for my [might as well be] sister-in-law. She loves to crochet and would love some of these I bet.

Stumbled upon your blog last week. I now have it on my list of usual blogs. I have made 2 of these crocheted flowers now. Thanks so much for sharing. I got better with the second one. I have only ever made afghans and so these were challenging and fun and turned out great. They are off to Montana for my brother in law and his wife. I will be making 3 more before Christmas for more gifts. I have been quilting for about a year and needed a wee break from it. Now I am back to it today making a couple pillows for my mom. Merry Christmas!!!
