Button crochet flowers.

An interesting way of using up those buttons.. especially when they look like this..Here  I have a box , a large box , some that were from my Mothers collection, some that I have collected on the way..
 crochet buttons along with my tools of trade :))
 Of course the larger the hole the easier it is to pull the cotton through.
I used 4ply and #10 cotton..
Had a lot of fun making these, they will brighten up many projects..

2o down 22 to go, then the smaller rounds that join it all together..

It can be a problem having WIPS in bags.. remembering what hook was used ..  I think it was Dorothy over at  Hooks n Grannies  who suggested to place a note of the hook size in the bag.
Great idea !
I seem to have lots of sticky notes around LOL...

Thats it.... Have a great week .. till next time :)) hugs pat ..

Toy bag or peg bag...

 The days here in the North of Tasmania have been stunning...So much going on in the garden and the back shed.. there was little time to crochet.. I can hear you say "wash your mouth out Pat "lol.. but that is the truth of the matter,.. So I thought I would share what all the drilling and hammering has been about... Keep in mind, I am some what of a chicken  when it comes to using machinery ...But I did get into the spirit of things and heres the proof..

Hubby with his hammer :))

Plant stand under the kitchen window..

Orchids are so beautiful and a couple here in flower..
Now for a little crochet..A bag that turned into basket ..

 to hold yarn ...
A toy bag for the back of the chair...
  could also be used for a peg bag... A grab bag...what ever you want it for really :))

A 10"square I have been making , the flower pattern is so pretty :))
The hook is busy making slippers, and little roses from over Here
