I just discovered the African Flower motif last year and fell in love with it straight away, I went crazy at that time I just couldn't stop making them, however I only had a limited amount of the cotton yarn I was using and as it was stash yarn I couldn't really buy any more to add to it. I had no idea what I was going to do with the motifs once I had made them but I was quite happy making one after the other trying out all the possible colour combinations with the limited amount of yarn I had. Eventually I did get sick of making them and they were pushed into a bag and put away out of sight. It was only when the doily on my coffee table eventually dropped to pieces and needed replacing that I remembered these little beauties, when I unearthed them I fell in love with them all over again. So I have joined some of them together to make this doily and there are still enough to make a matching one for my dinning table. I love it and the good thing is I can sit and gaze at it everyday while I drink my coffee :)
and here it is sitting quite happily on my coffee table.
