African Flower Pillow...


Do you remember a looooong while ago, my first attempts over African Flowers???
 You can read about it here and here and here...
They were hybernating for a long time because I was blank about what to make with them... I lost inspiration, got started with several other projects, had the moving, my trip to Mexico, etc...
And I just couldn't figure out what to make with them... I had 24 made, all the posible color combinations with my 4 colors... and I couldn't get more of that yarn because we got it in a ond-day trip in a small town... so I couldn't do a lot more flowers to make a blanket or something like that...
I made a few tryings joining them together, I tried to make a rug and a vest... a run for the table... nothing!!!!

So, finally,  I took it out last week to force me to assemble something with it so I could take it to the LYS to exhibit...

Oh yeah!!! EXHIBIT!!!! of my crochet pieces!!!! at the LYS!!!!!! wooohoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A couple of weeks ago, the owner asked me if I wanted to exhibit my crochet things at the store... and, I mean (seriously??) how can you say no to that!!!! They have a LOT of knitting displayed but not that much crochet and she said she wants to impulse the tecnique... so I sat last week and browse through all my things to decide what to take there... I went yesterday to the store, with all the things, so she could see them and choose what she wanted to display... and I WANTED this african flowers there, so they HAD to become in something pretty!!!

And here's what I made::::::::::::

It was night and the pic is a bit dark, but you can see it clearly.... the best part is that I had enough yarn left to make 4 more flowers and make a second pillow!!!!!!!! (still unfinished!)

I'm very, very happy with it... and I hope to finish the second one soon!!!!

The exhibit should be setted up by the weekend, I'll take pictures to share!!!

Oh yes! I AM HAPPYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy happy days!
See you soon!
