So here are the new flowers I have made recently:

I love the pink and coral mix of colors for this type of Zinnias! Here is my take on them:

This flower is called a Dianthus.

My Grandma had 10 green thumbs. When I decided to plant my own flower garden years ago, she suggested Dianthus because it was easy to care for. Well I got lucky and where I planted mine, ended up being the perfect place and they grew beautifully and she joked about them looking better than hers! They even came back the next year even though they are not supposed to Smiley

These red Poppies look better in person than in a photo, cameras generally do not like red and I forgot to reduce the saturation:

Some white Orchids:

Here is a totally different style for me, I wanted to try a Southwestern design. I used fabric glue to glue felt circles on the back of the crocheted circles to give them a little bulk and to keep them from curling up.

And lastly, Fuschia, by challenge from my Mom. These flowers are so cool in their design, it was a big pain to do but it turned out well I think:

This one I think is my favorite, blue bells! It's so dainty, I just loved how it turned out and using the olive green against the darker green really set it off I think:

A little different than the rest, less organic:

I love orange and pink together

Hearts are fun!

Pale pink roses, my Grandpa always bought my Grandma pale pink roses:

Red roses:

This one is inspired by my Grandma's favorite rose bush, I told you all how she had over 200 rose bushes at one time, well the kind called Rio Samba was one of her favorites. It is easy to take care of and every bloom is different. Varigated orange corals and pink colors, this one is inspired by that type of rose:

And a white floral one:

Thank you all for always letting me share. It would be a shame not to, especially the ones inspired by my Grandma! Oh and I told my husband that I wanted to try to make one like those flowers, well they are really weeds here in zone 7, that have tall stalks with bits of purple coming out, they always seem to hang out with the clovers and he said he wanted to see me make one with honeysuckles, I think that too would be fun. My mom wants me to make one that is freesia because she thinks it is such a neat design for a flower!

I can't pick a favourite -- they're all so cute!

Oh wow, these are GORGEOUS.  I'd buy one in a hot second.  I love that they're based on something so personal to you as well; that's really sweet.

Oh, they're all so delicate and pretty! My favorite is the blue bells; I would definitely wear that. My friend is allergic to most metals, so I think this would be a great alternative necklace for people like that.

Those necklaces are awesome!  Of course I have a deep envy of those who can crochet as I am apparently impaired when it comes to working with yarn... Cheesy
They are amazing, though and I am definitely going to hit this rocks!

Lovely! I especially like the first two and the last one. You definitely shouldn't stop.

Oh, these are so lovely!!! My favorites are the third one, with the little circles (so much love for that one, it's so my style), the pale pink roses one (though they look more like almond flowers to me, which I love), and the last one, the white floral one. There are so many possibilities with this kind of necklace, I love it!!

Hey, I'm curious, are they heavy enough to sit right around your neck?

Personal swap? Yes please!
Will craft for yarn.
