Crochet Flowers

This is what I've been doing while watching tv this week. I've seen these on other craft blogs which had the link for the pattern, so thought I'd have a go. I used 4ply cotton by Patons and a 2.5 hook. I should just add that the pattern wasn't designed by me, it's available free for anyone to use, here's the pattern if you'd like to give them a go.

Whiff of Joy

This is my first time entering the challenge on Whiff of Joy, hope you like it. I've coloured the image with the usual distress inks.

Sketch Saturday

Christening Cake

This is what I've been working on for the last week or so. I enjoyed doing this cake as the decoration was left up to me, as long as the name was there. It's not very often that the decoration on a cake is left up to me. I made this cake for Carol, a friend on Auntys, it's the second cake I've made for her family.
