Reasons to be cheerful No.2

spring flowers

my first attempt at crochet

now I just need to go shopping for yarn !


  1. Great flower! Very pretty, especially with the button. I love grape hyacinths, we used to have hundreds in the garden when I was little, except I used to pop all the bobbly bits off and drive my parents mad!

  4. Just wanted to say thank you for joining my blog....so kind of you...I'm reading yours now...so pretty!xx

  5. Oh my! Your first attempt?! I only wish my first attempt looked anywhere near as pretty...I have been crocheting for a few years, but I was always too nervous to venture beyond the single crochet. I bought a great crochet book the other day, too. I don't know if you'll be able to find it or even if you'll be interested, but it's called "Stitch 'n Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker." The author is Debbie Stoller, and she is pretty funny. She makes it all so easy to understand, and it has a ton of modern, fun patterns! Have fun!

  6. I have been busy with the crocheted flowers too - yours looks great for a first attempt! - I'm loving the Spring flowers too - 2 bunches for £1 at the moment - lots of lovliness for such a small price! - Natalie x

  7. love the teacup jess it looks gorgeous. Your pics look lovely x Dom

  8. Grogeous flower, its fabulous for a first attempt..and i love the weeny button you've chosen for it, very pretty and spring like.
