Flower Power

crochet flower rug

Hi friends!

I hope you are having a great summer!

I realized that, when it comes to crafting and crochet during this season, I like to reach towards larger and very relaxing projects. Something that is repetitive and there’s not much thinking involved. Hot days and thinking? No no… not for me… thank you.

Just stitch after stitch after stitch… forever.

With exactly that attitude in my mind I found myself designing a large and chunky project that I took a few pictures of today. I will share more details with you as soon as the whole thing gets finished and the pattern gets written down. So, if you need me, I will be right here making my seven million flowers. 🙂

By the way, what is your favorite summer project? Is there anything you enjoy working on these days? Do tell!

With love,

    I love the possibilities your post today represents! This is looking very unique already, and everything you are inspired to do ends up fabulous! This project does look like something all new and I’m very excited to watch it take shape! My fascination lately has been shawls. Unfortunately I tend to start out with a pattern synod end up going a whole different direction as of inspiration hits. I Have many UFOs because my inspirations involve yarn colors and textures I haven’t stocked up on, and projects get put aside, waiting for some sort of financial windfall that will enable me to buy the needed yarns! LOL. I love color. I also love motifs, and long to bring my skill level up to enable me to join all the flowers I make in a big freeform, riot of glorious color! I don’t mean the “join at the tips” floral piece. I mean different shapes, colors and sizes of flowers, stitched in a way that it is a solid fabric. Don’t know if it will be a wrap, shawl, scarf or afghan. Just know it’s my current obsession! And my wips are shawls, 6 UFO’s as I type! Luckily, I just got a one time check (that NEVER happens) that will make it possible to buy all the yarns I need to finish my shawls! It’s a very random surprise and I can’t wait to buy my wish listed yarns finally!!

      Hi Wende! Yes, these are rugs! Good guess!! It is just a fun summer project, if it works out the way I’d like it to be, I will sure make the pattern to share. 🙂

    Hi Petra,
    I love your new rug. Your work is always so clean and crisp. You are so talented!! I look forward to getting your emails that announce your newest post.
    I am working on a flag throw for my sister. I sort of messed up on the pattern so I kept the wavy chevrons – alternating stripe colors every 8th row and then made my final 32 rows in blue and applied stars. So far, so good.
    Have a great weekend!
