A new crafting challenge.

I decided to set myself a new challenge and learn to crochet. I have been seeing the most gorgeous flowers created from crochet and I thought they would be a great way of adding flower embellies to cards and projects.

I bought a book and some hooks and some yarn and some more....

Then life got in the way and I have only had the chance to begin the journey recently but I can proudly present the first deformed creations on this new adventure.

I've decided to go with cream so that i can apparently spritz them with glimmer mists to match the colours to cards.

Hopefully i will have some more time to experiment this week.

Hope everyone is well. Hugs Cherry XXX


  1. How funny is that I'm doing the same well trying but I have a phobia of patterns and cannot for the life of me follow them so it's a slow process lolyours are wonderful and I can't believe you have only just learned the subject well done

  3. they look lovely cherry, well done. x

  4. This is another of those things that is on my very long 'to do' list. Glad that you had chance to start - your blooms are gorgeous. Great idea to spritz them too.

  5. great idea and very brave, i didn't realise you could spritz them, can't wait to see them in action! x

  6. If you get stuck then ...... talk to Wynneth as she's crocheted some lovely ones for me. These look great though so you probably won't need to! In answer to your kindle question on my blog . . . Pride & Prejudice at the mo!

    In case I forgot to thank you already - thank you for your birthday card

    Happy Sunday
