oh, so happy to hear from you again. I look so forward to your blog. So beautiful, you inspire me, as I am sure I already told you!


What pretty flowers and what pretty pictures!! xo, suzy


Thank you for the tutorial - I will be having a go at these. I really struggle to get the right hook with the right wool so I will try to get organised. I am off to check out the fabric - it is so bright and cheerful. I know what you mean about designers not getting it quite right, but this really hits the mark.

September has indeed flown by and here comes October already! So many things to do and so little time. I love your ruffled skirts.


my goodness your blog is always such eye candy - I LOVE IT!! Have just added you to our faves as I keep forgetting everyone's blogs and we have to be back here so much more. Thanks for the flower tutorial!! I cannot crochet but I am going to see if Rosie can give some a go!!! =)


Perfectly lovely, and inspiring. As always. But are you keeping your head above water? You sound insanely busy.

Thanks so much for the tutorial and for taking time out of all you have to do to post it. I appreciate it!


Thank you so much for the tutorial. As always your photos are absolutely stunning. I love Barefoot Roses fabric collection. I'm in process of making a quilt using "jolly packs" (5 inch squares) I bought from Thanks again for sharing!


I loved your crochet flowers so much I ended up picking up a copy of Sasha Kagan's Crochet Inspiration hoping to make some pretty crochet flowers. I can hardly wait to follow your crochet-a-long and see what comes out of my stash. Just out of curiosity, what will you make with all those flowers? I love the Barefoot Roses fabric too, the colors are really nice. I just picked up a copy of a quilt book with the theme of roses and started a wish list to start collecting rose prints! Its called "A Dozen Roses" in case you come across it in a fabric store. I hope things are better, less busy now that October is here!

Hey another Irish Rose fan! I love making these flowers! In thread and yarn! But yours are really colorful!

Thank you so much for this pattern I cannot tell you how much I love these flowers.
You know My grandma had a small placemat (I still have it) and it has some similar flowers & I was used to wonder how can I figure out the pattern. I tried making a flower but its not turning out like yours and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. You can see my flower here-

Some times things created artificially appeal more than the Natural ones. Your Floral designs are just like that, Colors full of variety and finishing at its extreme.

I think its a pretty good idea not that there aren't other sites out there that already do something similar but I think it might catch on here pretty well.

My little girls are love art, especially sewing. I have quite been having some trouble following on the instructions, do you happen to have a video on how to make this. I would love to try to make this one for my kids too. Looking forward for your reply, Thanks!

Just found your pattern thanks to skip to my Lou, but I'm having trouble I was wondering if you could help. I'm very new at crochet ( this would be my very first project) I'm stuck in 3rd rd. I'm using rainbow color yarn and I can't seem to figure out how to make 1 dc 1 tr 1 dc and 1 sc into the same 1 sc!!!!!!!! I would gratly appreciate it for someones help


Thank you so much for the flower pattern, I can't wait to try it.

@Oneida dl, the first step to putting multiple stitches into the same stitch is to start with the first, put 1 dc into the sc from the previous row, next yarn over 2 times then put your hook into the exact same spot, almost like you are putting it under and you may have to push a little harder than normal to get it in, then continue doing the "tr", the next dc & sc will be easier to get into the same spot. Other than that, check out this tutorial -


I made one!
thank you for going to the trouble to decipher and post this flower pattern, and for being so kind as to share it

I was a little confused in Round 3, and may have made a mistake, but it turned out ok and I like my flower, thank you xx


@Oneida - I didn't follow Round 3 very well either,

and I may have done it wrong because I didnt put my *sc, dc, tc, dc, sc* into a SINGLE CHAIN STITCH, but into the loop made by each 3 chain set - so each of my petals sits behind and a little under the one in front - towards the centre - and the 3 chain or 4 chain as in the last row are covered up by the petals

I'm having trouble imagining how to do it or how it would look if I did it any differently. I'd love a video tutorial too so I can see what has to be done xxx


I like this part of the post.I think a lot of people would be surprised how easy it is to start including fine activities in playtime.


Thats an interesting post. It was worth visiting your blog and I have bookmarked your blog. Hope to visit again.
