Crochet Flowers

Oh I have been having fun. I came back from teaching at Alston Hall up in the Pennines and felt that I needed a complete change from working with Organza fabrics and the soldering iron SO i have been re-skilling myself in the art of Crochet.

There is nothing better to get the creative juices working again than doing something completely out of the norm and this certainly is not the norm for me as many of you will know as you view the pictures.
