I totally love crocheted flowers.. and I've found nice ways to use them..



this one i made adding a gold sewing thread, there is no way I'll find gold yarn here where i live. but i liked the result.



sometimes i like what i do so much that i don't want to get rid of it, this happens with this yellow flower. i was supposed to be making stuff for a town arts&crafts fair. but it's hard for me to give my things away, ja ja ja. That happened a lot when i used to paint. I could never sell a painting, couldn't get rid of them. people keep asking me if i want to sell but it is hard for me to give my creations away. anyway i know this is not the Art community but i want to leave you this:



my favorite painting!!! i did it in college, gave it to my boyfriend, ask it back when we broke up, Roll Eyes and i still have it.

I love your flowers.  I have the opposite problem, friend and family tell me I should sell my stuff but instead I just give it away.  Sometimes I think "why should I charge for something that I get joy out of making when someone else may get joy from having it?"

Totally agree, but for me is difficult to either sell or just give it to someone. but, yes, is harder to sell.

Those are beautiful hair ties. What a good idea. And well done, too.
