I'm so happy to introduce you, finally, to Wildflower! At one point I almost gave up due to all the chaos in my home/studio. That's one thing that is a downside of working ( creating? ) from home. It's very much like when I was a stay-at-home Mom to three small boys who I homeschooled ( including four other local children ) while running a household single-handedly as well as a 10acre smallholding with a large vegetable garden and umpteen assorted Animals! Every holiday, without fail friends and family who had school going children would drop them all off at Aunty Jen...because Aunty Jen stays at home and doesn't work! Hahaha!
So while the kids have flown the nest and my babies have four legs and fur these days...I'm still "elected" to let workmen in, answer calls and take messages, shop for food, pay bills, do all the housework/garden/vet visits/sort out any home administration and so on. Can I say working from home, if your spouse works away from home...is NOT a level playing field? But nevermind all that...the upside has many advantages and it's worth all the aside aggravations to receive the benefits of those.
On to the Block! I've used the lovely soft Scheepjes Colour Crafter throughout. So many colours to choose from had me dithering like anything to settle on a choice! I've added two choices of Colourway although I am 100% sure you Lovelies will show me up with Colour because you are all so VERY talented when it comes to making my patterns absolutely shine. THANK YOU!❤
I've been wanting to make a large perfect circle that can be used as a circular cushion cover but also has the option of being squared off. So that's out of my system now!
And then there were Pom-Poms! I never knew Pom-Poms could be so addictive to make. You have been warned! 😃 There are so many tutorials for making Pom-Poms I have left it up to you to find one that suits you...because you can make them any size you want! I used this tutorial to make my Pom-Poms, using a fork! 😊
I don't have a round cushion inner so I'm going to have to shop for one. I thought this would be so pretty as a Poof...is that what they're called? 😃
This pattern is released as a "videos only" pattern today, but I will drop in the written version on Monday 21 May. Also, there will be a Dutch Translated Version coming up soon courtesy of the wonderful Cindy Van Der Schee! In the meantime, you can get stuck in if your preference is to watch the visuals. 😊 You can view all the pattern details here.
Happy Hooky and see you in Crochetland!
