Day One of Creativity Boot Camp

Today was the start of the online course Creativity Boot Camp. Each day we are given a prompt and we are to make something using that prompt in the medium of our choice. Of course I chose crochet. Our prompt for today was "ivory." I decided on making these delicate flowers with pearl beads & buttons as the centers. I'm really happy with how they turned out. What do you think? By the way isn't my little owl just the cutest? He was my 25 cent find at a garage sale this weekend! He sits in my kitchen window! :)



Kizzy wanted to have her picture taken with the flowers. She's a ham! I love her so much!



Tonight I will write out the pattern for these flowers & post the pattern here tomorrow. Be sure to check back tomorrow for it!

these are beautiful!
i wish i'd really buckled down and learned to crochet.
i think these would make really cute centerpieces at a wedding reception.
i would've done it, at least!

i really want to learn to crochet.
i tried a few months back, but i could never find good tutorials.
do you have any suggestions?

Karlie - you can still participate. You don't have to sign up really. Just go to the CBC blog and the prompts are up everyday :)

Jenny - yes! I can try! But I must warn you, I tried teaching Lindsay over skype and I don't think I did very well! But we can try!

Lydia - I took a crochet class at our local yarn shop last year. She taught me the basics and I taught myself the rest through youtube and just studying anything crochet related! I will try to find some good resources for you!
