Spring Garlands...



Ah, yes.  Spring has sprung.  Finally!  And some more work out of my stash.  A couple of Spring Garlands using the now-famous Japanese Flower pattern featured here on Lucy's post.  They are so quick and easy to do, even with color changes.  The small flowers and leaves are also from a Japanese pattern book.  But my copy of the pattern is from a photocopy.  I cannot find the particular book although I have looked through a LOT of books.  And drooled a lot, too!  The Japanese crochet books are sooo lovely; printed very nicely featuring wonderful patterns!

UPDATE:  Joining in Kootoyoo's Creative Spaces today...

  1. Such a pretty garland Renee!
    Congratulations I've chosen your name for SIBOL 59.
    When I have the squares all from one lady it does make it so much easy to join them, therefore 'tidier'. Good name,
    Hugs Suex

  2. What an awesome idea! Maybe I should do this with some colorful snowflakes...

    I love Japanese patterns, too, especially when they are charted so I can make them!

  8. Looking good! :)They certainly make a happy touch to the room.
    Isn't Lucy's blog so inspiring? I love her scarf - it makes me want to try it. Where did you get your copy of the pattern? I am dying to try it, but the copies of the pattern that were listed for sale that Lucy linked to are all sold out.
    If you know where to get them, then just pop over to my blog and leave a comment. Thanks! :)

  9. So cute! I keep wanting to make a garland, but other things keep getting in the way of crocheting those last few flowers... Thanks for visiting me at The Stingy Stitcher!

    BTW, your comment in your profile about hoarding cross-stitch patterns made me laugh...I do that with every tutorial I want to try and every vaguely inspiring photo I see on people's blogs. Good to know other crafters hoard, too!
