all stitched and sent

Last year I learnt how to crochet...I quite enjoy it, but I'm still a bit dodgy at it, you know when you learn how to knit and you drop a stitch or split the wool? I'm still learning a simple stitch but I'm hanging in there and determined to try some different things. I thought I would give crocheting some flowers for this swap with the theme "bloom"
assembling the postcard... 
My sister is a bit clever when it comes to these things and showed me how to do the flowers. I had to have a few practice goes...but it was fun in the end and no split wool! 
So it's in the post on it's way to America. I hope the lovely lady receiving it likes it!
To check out what some of the other clever people did with the theme bloom...head over here.

  2. I just received it here today! It's a delightful mini afghan to keep me warm here in Alaska, haha!
    Thanks so much. I guess this swap works a little differently and my postcard went off to someone else.
    I'll try to post this up soon. happy spring to you, fall is well on its way here now.
