A Friday Flower - Crafty Style

This week I've started taking part in the December Elves challenge on Folksy. I've followed a lot of other crafty bloggers who make things who've taken part in some of the other listings challenges in the past. The basic idea of it is to list one new item on Folksy everyday for a month. I've always felt in the past that making something new everyday just for my Folksy shop was more than I could probably manage to take on.

This month however, I've decided that I'd take the plunge and do it. What made up my mind was when I prepared loads of stuff for a local fair, only to have snow arrive just in time to cut everyone off! Suffice to say sales were a bit slow as a result of the weather turning cold. The UK has been covered in one great big layer of heavy and somewhat disruptive white snow ever since. So armed with plenty of crochet scarves, hats and baby stuff looking of a new home, I'm taking part in this months challenge.

I feel like I've crocheted about 100 flowers in the last 2 weeks - so my crafty Friday Flower for this week is of the crochet kind. I'm dedicating these flowers to all my other December Elves to wish them all good luck with their sales challenge in the lead up to Christmas.

Here are some of my new items that I've started the month off with (click on the photos to view online)....

Pink White Crochet Baby Hat

Blue Ladies Crochet Hat

I love crocheting too, though I'm not very good at it. I have made flowers before though. I've got a great book about making them in all different styles.

Wow, making one thing every day....I'm impressed. I'm not sure I could muster up the energy to do that!!! Me...lazy?!!? What do you mean?!

Have a great weekend, my lovely.
