WIP Wednesday - Flower Collage

Happy Wednesday! All is quiet in my household. My kids are visiting their grandparents for the next three weeks! My son's graduation went great on Friday. I, of course, cried like a baby. Now two more years and my daughter will take that journey.

My Son the Graduate and my daughter!!

I have been steadily working on the Crochet Flower Collage. I have found many great patterns for all sorts of flowers! It has been so much fun. I have to give credit where credit is due for all the many patterns so you must bare with me while I provide all the links and designers.

This tri-color flower pattern was found through Pinterest. Yes, my go-to-site for inspiration!! The creative blogger who shared the pattern and tutorial is Rosie Rogers. This link is the picture tutorial I used.

The flower brooch pattern was found on Ravelry. The designer is Annette Petavy. I did mess up while doing this one. There should be 5 blue petals, but watching TV at the same time got the best of me. I will just make sure the next one has all petals.

 I also found the crochet-spring-flower-garland-pattern on Ravelry. A Hermit's Wish is the designer and it is a recent upload to Ravelry.

This is a pretty quick pattern and the end result is fantastic!

 I love the large rose pattern too. It is a rather quick pattern with another gorgeous end product! I found this pattern on Ravelry as well. It is by Annoo Crochet. A very good tutorial that is easy to follow. (Sorry for no picture, but I couldn't get it to upload. I will have more flowers with more pattern links next week.)

I have a few more flowers I need to crochet in order for the collage to be exactly how I want it. I do plan on adding a few embellishments to some of the flowers. I have been constantly picking out buttons for this one and that one. I'm also thinking about adding some beads to a few. It's just so much "crafty" fun! Then the real fun will begin with painting the canvas and gluing the flowers and leaves! I'm enjoying this project so much I might have to make another!

Please take a moment and hop over to Tami's Amis blog. There are so many creative bloggers to enjoy. Check out what they are in the process of making!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Now let me get back to creating more beautiful flowers!
