|Darn it, I'm on a new MAC and this color still looks red. It IS Hot Pink!|
Wellllll, did I write anything down....did I put it on Ravelry to track my progress......did I get right on making more?
That answer is a big fat NO.
And guess what?
My computer blew up.
Along with any bookmarks or notes.
And the notes in my mind? HA!
So, last night I sat down to make another 3D flower granny square. I got the flower made. I love it.
I used an "E" crochet hook.
Yet I saw an "I" hook sitting "out", indicating I had recently used it.
Yes. I did. Here is the evidence:
I know this is deceiving, because one already has the granny square added, but needless to say....those 3D flowers are different sizes. Here is why:
|Turquoise flower sitting ON TOP OF first granny square.|
Just a slight difference, eh? lol
Guess I'm starting over using the "E" hook because I like it better.....here are more photos:
|I tried to get a photo that really showed the depth....|
|This is the back/underside...isn't it cool?|
I plan to turn this into a granny square like the first photo BUT I got to thinking....this lovely flower could be used as adornment on a scarf....on a headband.....on anything! Wait and see what I come up with...I'm inspired!!
Okay....so guess what Cheri learned?
1. Write everything down as I go.
2. Enter projects on Ravelry, ASAP.
3. Back up computer weekly. LOL
I tweaked the floral pattern from this website:
I added a 3rd row of petals and then the granny square part, I played around until I found something I liked. I did not understand or ever figure out the rest of the Rosehip instructions. (I tend to have crochet written instruction issues....lol)
I WILL get this done and the pattern on here sooner than later. I want to make the pillow or purse....haven't decided..and so many other projects to get on to....
Hope you enjoyed!
