Quilted card and crocheted flowers...



My day to post over on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog again today - the weeks are flying by far too quickly!  This week I've made a quilt inspired card using hand stitching with this pretty Prima flower as the focal point.  I always like to have some ready made flowers in my stash for those times when I  haven't time to make my own.  There's a full supplies list and a step-by-step guide to hand stitching on cards HERE on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog.

Inspired by my blogging pal Katie, I attended a beginners crochet workshop yesterday.  In only two hours I'd made a flower!


A big achievement for a complete novice like me.  I had such a great time I'm going back next week for the intermediate class, best get practising!

  9. Love the stitched card Vicky and well done you for learning to crochet - I agree, its so much easier if someone shows you than trying to learn from a book. Once you get the hang of the stitches, you'll be making all sorts of things and its so much quicker than knitting. Just watch out with the US patterns though as their stitches are different to ours LOL. Margie x

  10. oooh this is stunning Vicky, your stitching is so neat! I used to be able to crochet when I was a kid but I wouldn't have a clue where to start now. Enjoy the next class.
    Love

  11. Lovely patchwork card - much prefer paper patchwork to sewing!!

    Your little crocheted flower looks great. A few months ago I wanted to try crochet and my Mum gave me one of her crochet hooks, I even bought a beginner's book .... but that's as far as I've got!! Look forward to seeing what you make next.
