Weekend Flowers

I spent almost the whole Saturday writing my thesis and having a hard time making coherent sentences so yesterday (since it's already Monday morning), I tried crocheting flowers and succeeded. ^_^

I remember trying to learn how to crochet when I was in fourth year high school because I was (and still am) into making accessories and I wanted to make crocheted accessories back then. But no matter how hard I try, I never got past the chain stitch.

However, last November (almost five years after my first attempt), I tried learning again and thanks to the internet and lots of willpower (I didn't stop until I got the single crochet) I can crochet now. Still a beginner (well, I only learned two months ago) but at least I can make scarves and flower appliques already. :D

I also crocheted this piano thing last week. It's a sleeve for my planner, I just need to stitch the sides together. This one is so time-consuming and difficult (at least for a beginner like me) so matter how much I love piano, I'm not making this again... or maybe I will if I get paid a reasonable price or if I find a quicker technique.

And here's the trellis doily I made yesterday with a free pattern I saw online. I'll make another one so that mom can put them on the side tables in the living room. Mom and Dad actually likes my new hobby because it reminds them of my late grandma who crochets.


  1. I remember my brother being taught in school of crocheting. They were tasked to create a place mat. He somehow liked doing it pero tinatamad siya. Good thing our neighbours were helpful. Haha.

    Btw, you might want to check out my best friend's blog. She has been fond of sewing and other DIY projects. Baka magustuhan mo lang. :) Link ->
