Waiting for spring.

I don't know about you, but as much as I love snow...enough is enough. I long for colour and flowers, I don't want wet trouser legs up to my knees whenever I go out. So there...I made my own little spring. All it took was wool, paper balls, a crochet hook and twigs.

crochet flowers

Easy peasy. Best of all - they will never fade.

P.S.: Crochet around a paper ball, try to keep track of the hole in the ball while you are working (that's where you insert the stem). Bind off, hide the end of your thread, put a dot of glue on the end of your twig, stick it in the ball - and you are done!

@Thanks, Lulu - it's an old vase my mom had as a child.

@Katarina Thank you! And actually, there are real flowers that look almost exactly like these. :)

@Lisa...quick crafts for sanity... :)

@Natasha - thank you! Snow is lovely for a while, but in the city it gets to be a pain after a while...we are slipping and sliding everywhere we go...

Thanks, @Emma! I discovered your blog a couple of days ago and it's a new favourite of mine. :)
