Yarn along - crochet flowers

I'm still having fun making crochet flowers which is a good job as I've had a commission for a little bundle of them. I've used DK sublime yarn and it has made lovely flowers, the detail shows up really well. A lady had seen my flower workshop advertised and contacted me to see if I would crochet some flowers for her daughter. I think she is going to use the flowers to embellish some of her daughters clothes and add them to pretty headbands.

I feel quite guilty that I have been joining in with Ginny's yarn along but I haven't read a novel for ages. Thankfully I have just started a new book, it's written by Sarah Butler "Ten Things I've Learnt About Love" - Laura bought it me a few weeks ago when I was unwell but I have to confess it has stayed next to my bed until now. It's early days I'm only a few chapters in so I will tell you more about the book next week.

I finished my crochet flowers this morning and was very pleased to parcel them up.................

All ready to go, I also added a little hair bobble which I made as an extra and a few chocolate treats............

I hope they arrive safely.
