Splashed with colorful blooms!!!!!

Hello!!! Hope you all are having a great crafty time! :)

I am ready and eager to show one of my finished pieces . I thought of a quick project and started making a flower. I liked it very much, so I made some more :)

Aren't they colorful?

Then, with the help of some crochet blocks and some tutorials on Internet, I made a square at the base of the flowers . I scoured my stash for bright colors to make the square but they always dominate the piece . So this time I decided no oranges, yellows or greens; let me experiment with different shades. I chose grey and burnt purple colors and I loved it. They don't look that dull....right?


Crochet flower square

I started joining the squares and added a border. I like brightening up everything ; so what, if not with colors, beads will do! :) I needed small pearls which I did not have . I decided not to rush to the store and instead shop from my own stock at home :) The ones I had were medium sized, but I guess they look good on the border . I love to see the beaded string while crocheting although sometimes it is irritating to continuously push them down. I also added some buttons at the joins .
The border pattern is a cluster edging (page no. 261) from the book ‘Crochet stitches visual encyclopedia’ by Robyn Chachula . I crocheted the beads at the edge of the cluster. I have used Anchor knitting cotton and hook size 2.75mm.

At last, the blocking part. It was a bit difficult because I crocheted slightly loose. After 1 hr of slogging to shape it, I decided that it can't get any better even if I sit for another one hour. This is perfect for me! :)

  25. Hello, these are also lovely flowers. I thought I followed you a long time ago, but aperently something went wrong... not this time:)

  26. How lovely Preeti! Beautiful colours ...each compliments the other. I must say I agree with you crochet flowers on motifs are a delight and so effective but adding beads too gives them that extra special touch. Are those buttons in the centre or tiny flowers I can't quite make them out?

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  31. Hi Preeti, I find it interesting that you say science has proven that the length of our life is mapped into our genes, because I have recently read the exact opposite. That heredity actually plays a very small part when it comes to our health. Turns out it is what we do each and every day that makes a difference. There are so many different schools of thought out there and we all have to do what we think is right. Like you, however long I live, I want to be healthy, of sound mind, kind and compassionate. Blessings to you and yours, Tammy
