Margaret was making a crochet flower to embellish a crochet shawl she's just made, and that made me wonder if it would be possible to make a wooden flower. So I pratted about a bit at making a pattern. Seventeen bits of pine later, I'm quite happy with the final result. What do you think?

Very impressive - if it's not flammable, could you put a tea light in it for the garden?

Thanks for your positive comments to everyone.

 

It's decidedly flammable, but could be used to hold a candle, but knowing Margaret, she'd spill molten wax on it, and cleaning that off from between the petals would be a right pain in the posterior.

 

In case it's of interest, I also put this post on the new forum, which has a much bigger active membership, and only two people have commented. Although it's a bigger forum, I must prefer the membership of this original forum, and just wish it would become more active.

Keep up the good work - look forward to seeing your next creations.

 

 

 

PS - Always think that it's strange (and frankly dangerous) that flammable and inflammable mean the same thing!

I quite agree about inflammable - English confuses me at times, so the Spanish have no chance.

 

When we make our regular visits to the oncology department at Elche hospital, we usually get a drink in one of the cafes there.

 

One of them has a nice but simple mural on the wall, and on our last visit I took a picture of it and cropped out a small segment and turned it into a pattern.

 

Simple design easy to cut, but quite effective.

That's really lovely - would make a nice valentine's gift - two love birds all on their own in their own little world - well that's what I see!!

The reason they look so plump is that they're two of the thieving flock that are nicking all my grapes!
