my creative space

I've been a little busy on the allotment this week to get much done creatively but I did have a go at some very simple crochet flowers. I'm planning on making some summer dresses for the girls and thought some little flowers would be a lovely detail on them - so I had a go at these simple ones and had great fun - I've even ordered a couple of crochet books dedicated just to flowers and motifs, so watch this space for some more.

See more creative spaces at Kirsty's.

Meanwhile the garden is looking happy, this is my favourite tree, I have no idea what it is, but every year for few weeks it is this beautiful fluff of pink.
It's a fairly spindly tree and once the pink has gone it looks a little whispy.
Here's a close up of it's tiny delicate flowers, some are yet to reveal themselves.

If you know what it is please tell me, I'd love to know.

happy weekend x


  1. I don't know what that tree is but, it sure is lovely!
    I like your sweet little crochet flowers.

  2. Oh, great flowers. My Creative Space post this week was about crochet and the need to make a flower but my lack of skills, I have no idea what to do. I'll keep working on it and mine might resemble the great flowers you've done sometime soon.

    Thanks so much, although I wont hold my hopes up too high of my skills improving too much, as I am such a beginner I barely know what all the terminolology and stuff means, but you can only try hey :) Thanks for your help.

  5. Thanks so much for the kind comment you left on my blog. I love all those little flowers and can't wait to see them adorning some gorgeous little summer frocks. Have fun with your new books. X
