First day of summer .....

candy coloured summer flower branch......



The free flower tutorial is from this blog. The instructions are written well and, was easy to follow.  I initially thought of making a wreath but changed my mind, when I came across this branch,while taking a walk in my neighbourhood park.

I gathered flowers and a leaf and tied them in to a bunch and then tied again to the branch.

All four colours are of same variety of  yarn; yet another thrift store find :)




Thank you for stopping by to read this post,

Crochet throw

for the sofa...


The motif pattern is from VOGUE Dictionary of crochet stitches..page 144.



All the yarn are from my thrift-ed collection. I tried my best keep in with the colour palette I had in mind, as well as to use yarn of the same variety. There are slight variations specially in yellow, as I did not have enough of the same. 









I am pleased with my effort, although there is lots of room for improvement. 



Thank you for stopping by today,

until next time,
