I may have gone a little mad

I wanted a task that would use up all my little balls of ends.
At first, I thought of making a bunch of little squares and stitching them all together in various shapes and sizes. Making little patchwork quilts for trees or rural objects.
But I thought coming up with something that forced me to learn a new skill sounded like a better plan.
So I went to youtube and I looked for a video to teach me how to crochet a flower. I found This lovely video and set out to make them.

And then I went a little mad.

so far, 22 "flowers" worth of mad. But by the time you read this, I cannot say how many flowers worth of mad it may be. Also, I say "flowers" cause if you'll see, this one looks a heck of a lot like coral.

(this was it before the black trim)
At least a lot more like coral than like a flower.
Let's just say I took her pattern and ran with it.
I don't want to stop making them though. I actually bought more ends for next to nothing because I wanted to make even MOAR colorful flowers. XD
This is very entertaining I must say. I want a whole bunch of them. So when I bomb them, it will truly be something to see.


  1. so fun! its gonna be exciting to see what you do with them! youtube is sweet for little videos like that hey?

  2. I am really enjoy youtube for teaching me how to crochet. I mean, it all started with a how to youtube video, and now I am starting to think I might be able to follow a written pattern XD
    And Thanks!
