puffy flowers



I love these.




Truly, truly can't stop looking at them or picking them up for that matter.




The pattern is from Eclectic Gipsyland & she has the most amazing tutorial for making these.




I just can't get over...

 the color

 the vividness  

& of course, the puffiness of each flower.




I think I have the makings for the perfect coffee cosy.




btw --- I am experiencing sort of glitch when trying to post comments on your blogs.  For some reason I am unable to do this & just short of tossing the computer out the window  I am getting some techie-support so I can once again comment on all of your loveliness.

those flowers aka Mollie flowers...I love them too but after I made a bunch (!!) I couldn't decide what to do with them so they sit in a bag...all together...waiting to bloom
try signing out before you make a comment...it workds most of the time...but it gets annoying as you have to then sign back in to get to the blog...

Those are so cute. I can see them on the ends of a scarf. PS I'm having trouble commenting on blogs too.

Yummmmmm-y! I tried making these when I was new to crochet. I need to give them another try, now that I'm more comfortable with a hook! Yours are gorgeous. Hugs, Annette

So so tempted to make these...I feel like they would look super cute as a headband or maybe a bead curtain type thing (except it's flowers instead...) or even as bunting! the possibilities are endless! Love it.

Awww, Dawn! Our favorite colors! Just lovely! I've seen them attached to headbands and hairclips and they looked so cute!

I love these flowers - can't wait to try making them. I have had trouble commenting on blogs - seems like this is a common problem lately. I have to sign out and sign back in - this works but is a pain! There is obviously a glitch somewhere that is causing problems for quite a few people - you are not alone.

I really love these little flowers.. Can't wait to get my left hand back in action and start crocheting again... :))

love these flowers. I printed out that tutorial like forever ago but haven't got round to making them yet - so many gorgeous things to make and so little time! i'm having a nightmare with posting comments too (hope this works) would love to hear if you get a solution as so far I haven't. It only seems to be some blogs though and ironically blogs that I've followed for a long time and not had probs before. Michelle at michellemadethis.blogspot.com

I looove your flowers! I found them when I came over to tell you that I've changed the URL of my blog. The button you have of my blog will not work anymore one of these days. There's a new button on my new blog and there's a link party going on right now. I would love it if you’d add something. Hope to see you on my new blog! Have a lovely day!

When ever I come across a new blog that I love, I start at the very first post! When I saw the box of quilt blocks you opened at a thrift store....omygosh....my heart stopped also. It must have been like Christmas Day when you found those. Love your blog.
