Happy Valentines :)

Woollie roses - just in case I don't get any fresh ones, I had a back-up plan and made some myself, hehe! Really enjoyed making these last night - the pattern came from my new crochet book 'Cute and Easy Crochet' by Nicki Trench. I tried the first one using natural coloured aran wool - it turned out OK, so I thought I'd try another one in red, being Valentines day and all.

I might have a wee playaround with them later today - lots of possibilities for using them as embellishements, brooches etc. I think my 'love affair' with crochet has just been rekindled - ah, sweet!

Hope you're feeling all loved up today :)

They're pretty and will last so much longer than expensive fresh ones, but I hope you get some of those too!

So lovely to catch up with you again Alison. Not been blog visiting for a while. What a good Valentine' s idea - they'll last much longer than the real thing. x
