Since spring is here and many flowers have shaken off their winter inertia, I thought I should come up with a seasonally appropriate post. Plus, I just recently joined Crochet.Community (an online group) and they hold quarterly competitions where the winner is awarded $50 and a t-shirt. This current competition is, of course, flower themed. The only really good flower I’ve made I gave to my mom, and didn’t take a photo of it beforehand. So instead I entered a very elegant (if I do say so myself!) Poinsettia Potholder. Not the spring flowers the CC had in mind, I’m sure, but it didn’t get kicked out either. So we’ll have to see. Results will be in on May 1st – just in time for my next post.

Earlier today I was perusing Pinterest and came across some of the most gorgeous crocheted flowers. BTW, as a general rule I don’t like crocheted flowers – too kitschy for me I guess – but these are definitely the exception. Enjoy!
