yarn along - crochet garland..................

I have fallen in love with Prima Makes Issue 1 it is packed full of wonderful projects. I haven't seen this magazine before and I must confess I have it by default, my friend Pam had bought it and then left it behind at my house (she kindly said I could keep it) I have at least ten different projects I want to try my hand at.

The first on my list is a really pretty flower chain, the pattern has been taken from Cute & Easy Crochet with Flowers by Nicki Trench, which is also on my wish list.

I've made the large flowers and love them, the pattern included some smaller flowers which I didn't like quite as much, as instructed I have hand sewn the flowers onto a simple chain - I love the results and feel a flower obsession coming on.

Not the most perfect of images but I am so pleased with my lovely flower chain - although not sure what I will do with it.............maybe if it was longer it would make lovely bunting, what do you think?

I'm joining in today with :-
Marianne and Chrissie

    That's so gorgeous, I made something similar for a friend a little while ago and added to some bells to it as well.

  12. Hello Sue, such a pretty garland, lovely colours - perhaps it will make an Easter garland? I've got a thing about crochet flowers at the moment and have just bought "100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet" by Lesley Stanfield, it's packed full of things I want to try so that's my weekend sorted! Hope you have a lovely weekend too.
