La Fleur..

by Kate on February 17, 2011

A few months ago, this book found it’s way to my house.

It is such a pretty book, full of lovely pictures and after having a flick through I was inspired enough to declare to the family: ‘I am going to hook up every single flower in this book and create an entire field.’ I do like a dramatic statement.

Regular readers should see what is coming.

Project scaled down…considerably.

La Fleur..

I did manage the hellebore, the buttercup, the lazy daisy, the tradescantia and the meconopsis. It is safe to say my flower creating days are over.

Head over to Kirst’s for some real creative spaces.

I love the Hellebore. Now you’ve got a few, they might set seed and you could have your field after all!

I have exactly the same book and the same intentions …. so far I’ve managed to make precisely nothing! I will get round to it soon, I hope!

Ha! I did exactly the same thing with that book.
I do have plans to revisit now that I can knit. I think from memory so many of the cutest ones are knitted.
Love the ones you did get to.
Have a happy Thursday. X

Ahh, but what are you going to do with all the flowers at the end? Maybe cover a teapot cozy??!!

They are quite lovely. I’ve looked at that book a couple of times but haven’t gotten much further.

Well in a small inner-city backyard like mine that IS an entire flower garden! Very cute. Sure Maddie was very in favour of this crafty pursuit.

I do believe I may have said the same thing myself and haven’t hooked one. I think I was planning on one a day :)

well done, you !!
I was getting this one too and realized it was both about crocheting & knitting ( and everybody knows I’m hopeless at following a knitting pattern) so intead I got a couple of japanese crochet (flowers) books. and believe it or not, I’m into crocheted flowers (of any size) at the moment ! the crave for Spring (here in the northern hemisphere) to come ; )

They are very sweet. As for the sweeping and dramatic statement you didn’t say they will be done before next week so it is still valid. As a sayer of the dramatic statement I have decided to give myself a break and realise my creative hands can’t keep up with my creative mind. So keep going :)

I was already on to you half way through your dramatic statement. Don’t stop though. They are never anything but inspired.

Every time I get the bent to crochet I try to make a flower, and then give up again forever.
Yours are beautiful, especially the green one in centre.

Hellebore is THE best name for a flower, don’t you think?

I love these, well done!

I love that book too! I did quite a few of them for my sister in law when she was away in Brisbane and just today I thought I could use the Chrysanthemums for a mothers day yarn bombing. Yours look great (but don’t you need some red ones?? ;-) )

I bought the same book but I am so bad at crochet. I made a couple of misshaped flowers but am inspired to have another try now that I have seen yours.
