Playing with flowers

This week I am playing with flowers





combining different flower squares and colours


I am experimenting with 3D texture to add dimension



using shades of pink lilac and turquoise


This special blanket
 is a gift for my mothers 80th birthday next month
and is called
Emily's Garden

when complete I will write up the pattern
 giving links to the granny squares used


Don't forget
 to take advantage of the super offer from 
which you will find in my previous blog post
you can get 3 issues for £5 !!!

Have a great hooky week my friends

Playing a bit of catch up today at your blog Heather, thanks for the heads up on your previous post about the magazine.
Granny Emily is lovely and the variations of the colours for each one is great. I'm glad you mentioned keeping the white round the same on each one, I could see the squares 'went' together but didn't really see how.
And wow on to this post, you've been super busy making all these flowers. Such beautiful colours and your photo's are gorgeous. Your mother is a very special lady to have such a talented daughter and this special blanket is shaping up beautifully

Until next time xx
