FLOWERS - warning picture (I hope) heavy

My turn!!  Thank you all for the lovely comments on my Birds blog hop.  It was a sad showing as , apparently, I was the only one who could see all the pictures. Fingers crossed for the showing of the flowers...

Thanks again to Madame Samm and our lovey cheer leader Carol for allowing all these beautiful flowers to bloom.

I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to make for this event.  So I vacillated...do I want to knit...
knitted daffy in the garden

no...not grabbing me.

paper flowers..well I couldn't beat my granddaughter's display
Happy Spring


Then I decided to buy the Farmer's Wife book and see what I might come up with...TEMPLATES...argggggg..I do not like working with templates
Rosebud
I made one six inch square and that was enough of that.  Now what....3D flowers - not loving it.

hummm back to the original plan-knitting

yarn and pattern chosen - finally.  But the angst was not over yet.  The felting of flowers - first version

it looks like there is one great big lint ball in the center.  Felting of the flowers take two:
and finally the finished product:

  2. Nana. Loved all your flowers! How nice to see knitted felted flowers. They are all wonderful and your post was not picture heavy. We love all the pictures. When it's word heavy, now that's a trial!

  3. What a great knit bag with the felted flowers. Since so many things were quilted for this hop, it's nice to see something a bit different, yet every bit as lovely. I like all your attempts too at other things. I do that a lot too.
