CAL Pretty Flower Brooch

Hello to you.
Hope you're all well?
This week I have had some changes in my life. I've got myself a little part time job cleaning and ironing for a family down the road. Prefect timing - just before Christmas!
I made myself a little flower brooch this week.
I've finally managed to treat myself to Cute and Easy Crochet with Flowers.
Here is my lovely new copy.
I wanted to start myself off with a quick project, so I chose the brooch.
The book is full of amazing projects.
Some of which the ladies from the CAL crochet-along are making.
LadybirdDiaries and Chrissie Crafts are making a beautiful hexagon blanket.
So I made all the bits first...
Then sewed them together, easy as that.
Here it is on my cardigan! ready for its first outing.
I must say I'm really enjoying joining in with the crochet-along. I really enjoy popping into other blogs and seeing the lovely things they're making.

This time my crochet is definitely blooming. Still working on the CK inspired blanket only a few more rows to go now! And then I can get bordering.
Hope that you've all enjoyed a lovely week.


  1. I love the brooch, just gorgeous!
    I too treated myself to that book, so many lovely projects, and I have just started joining in the CAL too!
    Enjoy your crocheting, and well done for getting the job - sounds really handy.

    Well done for getting yourself a handy job so close to home and Christmas - a nice little bit of pocket-money for you, and a change of routine can be refreshing too; don't work too hard though!
    I'm looking forward to seeing your blanket all finished, cosy and cuddly!
