Puffed Daisy Hexagon




Season's Greetings!

I'm sorry that it has been a while since my last post, but I've had some technical gremlins here that have kept me off-line! It's been wet, wet, wet here for so long that I've forgotten the last completely dry day we've had – mainly miserable rain, but mixed with some snow for the last few days. Not pleasant to be out in, but the perfect excuse to stay by the fire and crochet!


I'm still bobbling along, but the rounds seem to take an age to complete now, so I can only manage one or two rounds at a time...


Of course, my itchy fingers have needed something smaller and quicker to create between marathon rounds so some experimenting was in order. I have what can only be described as an obsession with floral motifs, particularly daisies, plus as you will know by now a real love of bobbles,and as I fancied a new hexagon motif the Puffed Daisy Hexagon took shape; instructions below.

I NOW HAVE A NEW WEBSITE AND THIS PATTERN CAN BE FOUND AT -

I despair when I read my patterns; if any of you manage to decipher it/them you deserve a medal!


Anyway, I'm obsessed with these at the moment, so enough typing, I'm getting back to bobbling. If I don't post again before Christmas, Happy Christmas and a happy, healthy and creative New Year to you all. A big thank you also to those that have left such lovely comments, I do appreciate them and because of my technical problems I have been unable to reply before now, so until I do it personally thank you very much!


Happy crocheting

  21. Once I thought about things like: why such information is for free here? Because when you write a book then at least on selling a book you get a percentage. Thank you and good luck on informing people more about it! Portland Floral
