My Family Think I've Lost The Plot!

A Collection Of Flowers 2

The Granny Rose


When I'm sitting with nothing to do I find myself just picking up a hook and making a few of these. it doesn't matter where you are people always comment on how lovely they are.
Thank you Astri for introducing me to these beautiful roses.

roses, flowers, crochet, easy, pretty, decoration

I have a couple of projects in mind for these, now take a look at this.


Does that not want to make you weep? my poor shrub was killed by the frosts!

but all is not lost....tadaaaa




It's amazing how more and more roses seem to blossom but they never die off!  I started off with 24 and at the last count there were 36, they just seem to fly off my hook and land right here.


 I think that looks so much better don't you? 

Why do some people namely one certain brother not understand that it's ok to be a bit silly now and then, he thought I should chop it down!!!......or do you think I've lost the plot too?  I don't mind it's staying haha

It seems that red roses are in just now have you seen what Astri has been doing with her's take a peep.

I will show you what I did with the others in a later post

Stats
Each rose takes just 5 grams of yarn

  1. I think it looks beautiful Linda. I also think it's a perfect crochet remedy for a bare bush. :)

  2. I am ROFL! That is the best idea for the roses, yet. I can't stand it I am smiling ear to ear!!! I love that before and after photo of the frost bitten shrubbery.

    You are so kind and funny Linda. Thank you for the good words and the links. :-)

  3. The dead shrub looks pretty with your crocheted roses. :-) Silly is good and making people (like your brother) wonder a bit sometimes is fun! ;-)

  7. Nothing wrong with some silliness. I'm just about to write a post about something similar. You have to laugh sometimes!!! Will you leave those roses on there permanently?

    Give me a crocheted shrub over a plastic topiary ball hanging by a front door any day.

  14. I would not mind what others say...because that bush looks lovely with the red roses. (I´d just be afraid that they get ruined with the rain)

    1. I don't think they will Ana, it's acrylic yarn and I can easily take them off for the winter, they are just fixed with garden wire. :)

  20. Who cares what anyone else thinks? I think it is absolutely brilliant to put your beautiful crocheted roses on that tree branch. Why cut something down when you can increase its beauty with just a bit of hand crafting? More people should try to do anything and everything to spread beauty and joy all around. Best wishes to you, happy crocheting, Tammy
