CROCHET A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS
 article and image by Carole Terwilliger Meyers

These flowers are a snap to crochet.  They require little yarn so you can use up scraps.  I like to crochet them when I am visiting my grandchildren.  The flowers keep me busy when I get bored and when the kids ignore me.  Often the kids will check in with me to watch my progress.  I always give the flowers away, and sometimes just leave them laying around to be discovered.  Who doesn’t like a flower?
