Thank you so much for all your great comments on my latest posts, I enjoyed reading them!
Last week I was busy with having fun making some crochet flowers.
Since there are not too many flowers in my (balcony) garden, I decided to help nature along a bit by making some colourful crochet flowers!
This is the result!

A little Book review: 100 Bloemen om te haken (100 Lace Flowers to Crochet)
The above flowers (with exception of the Crocodile Stitch Flower) can all be found in this useful crochet book:
|Caitlin Sainio - 100 Lace Flowers to Crochet (in Dutch)|
There are general sections which show a number of flowers next to each other over 2 pages (grouped by colour).
Then each of the flowers have their own page where you can find a photo, a crochet chart and written instructions how to make the flowers. There is an index at the back, listing all the flowers.
Near the end, there is a small section which shows some nice examples of what you could do with the flower motifs.
Here are some of my flowers next to their pages.
What I like is that these are realistic looking flowers! Some are more complicated than others, but this book suits all levels of crochet experience. You could start with the easier models and then progress through the book, choosing your own challenges!
Disclaimer: This review is my own, based on a book that I bought myself.
I had bought this book a while back for reference, but the reason I dug it out now was that I will be holding a little Crochet Workshop next week for the Adult students who study Dutch at our School. I'm looking forward to it!
What would you decorate with crochet flowers such as these? Have you already made something using flowers? I'd love to hear your suggestions and ideas!
