Cymbidium completed

small lemon Orchid

3 completed Orchids
Here it is.. :)) A few changes were made to my pattern, but I am pleased with the outcome.I can't believe how lovely it looks on my coat. It is made in DMC #8 cotton perle.

It looks like there will be a few more made as my sister has ordered a few for gifts..:)) I have started a varigated yellow Orchid, not sure as yet if I will draft a pattern for it or just wing it.. There are so many beautiful flowers out there to design into crochet.. What I love about crochet is.... it doesn't take long to make what ever it is you have in mind...  I remember my Mum crocheting edges for linen hankies, and rugs etc..  She was a wonderful teacher, I owe my gift to her..

Hi Mum,
What are the dimensions of your flower?
And how have you attached it to your jacket? :-)
