|Daisies in my mums English garden|
I have decided on a crochet project. I posted a couple of weekends ago about my Pinterest
inspiration to crochet a blanket. I was really taken by the colours in the DAISY pattern
So I have got (some of) my supplies. The yellow for the centre, the white for the petals and a blue for the first border around the daisy. I will have to source one more blue as another suitable one couldn't be found on my rounds of the shops.
has a tutorial for this quilt with photographs but for someone who doesn't even now what a dc is, it was going to be tricky. It doesn't matter as there are so many tutorials on YouTube and I am sure I can fudge my way through it. I followed one YouTube tutorial and created this yellow centre just to get into the swing of it..
After more perseverence, I eventually finished up with a crocheted square. I hope this looks ok! I have been struggling with my tension. Holding the yarn does not come naturally to me. I feel like I have all thumbs. LOL. This is my fourth (or fifth) attempt.
I just wish I didn't feel that I need to achieve perfection everytime I start something new. I have to accept that perfection comes with practice.

That is so beautiful. And good for you trying something new. I haven't crocheted in years but seeing this makes me want to, that's for sure. And I remember what it was like when I first started. Hang in there, you'll get the feel of it as you and honestly you're done a great job already!ReplyDelete
