frogs and flowers

frogs and flowersCrochet on the table in an old or new lantern, I crocheted a tree frog and a orchid and placed the on a branch of one of mine garden shrubs. The tree frog came from roman-sock, A page full of nice little patterns.

The orchid is my own idea. On the table was a nice flowering orchid and I copied it a bit, The plants are fasten on the branches with small wire. The pattern for the frog included some bright eyes, but I hadn’t these in my stash, so I made the eyes with yarn.

On the bottom of the glass container is froggieanother frog. This one is crocheted wit very small yarn, katia jaipur. The frog turned out to be an nice beast, I made the eyes this time with some wooden orange beads. She turned out to be a rather nice frog.

Autumn flowers

autumn flowers

My box is full of flowers and autumn  leaves, all crocheted. It is a colorful picture. I am going to sew the flowers and leaves on a bag. But I am still wondering what the best way to do it will be. Will I make a crocheted base or will I sew the object directly unto the bag. The flowers an leaves patterns are all from a book. The resemblance with real flowers and leaves is very natural and good.

plantjes It is very quiet around the CAL, but I am still working on it. Today a glimpse of the container and its occupants. I have made an orchid, just like the one that was flowering on my table all summer. I found two nice sticks. I believe they where once honeysuckle branches. They are nicely shaped and perfect to be an underground for the leafy plant I crocheted before. I am looking for a nice critter that can be placed in the container.

Container III

cactus Well I Haven’t much time, but I have the container filled with this little plant, a green cactus. It was more work than it looked and not very original. But it is finished and now I can go on with the next chapter, critters a flowering plants. But You have forgotten the moss, I hear say. No I have not, I crocheted a floor in the container,a mossy floor.

zonnebloem I am totally addicted to crochet flowers and leaves. And looks this sunflower with leaves not nice on my sunhat. I found in the shop a nice book with many flower and leaves patterns. I Like the patterns very much. It seems of they resemble the flowers themselves. The patterns are not easy to crochet, but the result is beautiful.

Mini container with plant

It was a busy week with all kind of things to do and minimal crocheting. But the weather is cool now and the hook ready so nothing to stop me. I am also experimenting with my containers. I found this nice little glass box and it seems perfect for my trifidplant. Maybe I have to crochet something nice looking to put with it in the box. But it has to wait for I have many W.I.P.s on the moment.
