Remember these? A couple of weeks ago I told you about my playing around with flowers. This is what I came up with for my idea of a corsage with a bit of a difference.

I wanted the layout to evolve organically and all by itself, rather than planning it all in minute detail before starting. So I set to work with some yarn scraps from my stash (all worsted weight), a 5mm hook and some beads, and this is the result…

…do you like it? It’s a quick little project! You can whip it up in an afternoon or evening, ready to wear the next day or as a last minute gift for someone special. Do you want to make one?

Here is how:

You need: Yarn scraps and corresponding crochet hook, some beads to decorate and 1 brooch pin.

Ch5, ss to form a ring.

Rnd 1: Ch1 (counts as dc), work 9dc into ring, ss to join.

Rnd 2: *Ch3, work a 7-st tr cluster in next st, 3ch, ss in next st; repeat from *4 times, ss to join.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Make as many flowers as you need for you corsage (I made seven for mine), assemble in a way that pleases you and stitch together. For the final icing on the cake (or flower in this case!) add some beads and attach the brooch pin to the back.

Have fun creating and wear with pride!

dear diary,

for the first time in ages I have enjoyed my daily walks with Max this week. Lately the fields around me have been water logged and very soggy to walk in, no fun at all. All change this week, we have had frosty mornings…

My House

Where I live (you can just see my house)

…with bright sunshine.

Max and I have really enjoyed feeling the crisp air in our lungs and the warm sunshine on our backs…

Boots

First time in ages my boots aren’t muddy

…and all this warm sunshine has encouraged first signs of life in my garden.
