A Favorite Flower

I love crocheting this flower and think they are adorable. They would look really nice as an embellishment on other items, or with a pin on the back, as a brooch!

Monday, July 21, 2008

Aren't these just the most adorable creations? They come from the shop of Nanasue, way down under in Australia! She makes these cute animals, and not only shares those with others, but also promotes others in the Etsyhooker crochet group! How sweet is that! You will want to visit her shop at And, she has also created a really nice treasury featuring her crocheting colleagues. You can visit that treasury and see a wide variety of items created by talented crocheters at
I appreciated so much being included in her treasury!
