My Own Japanese Flower

Hi,

I saw the Japanese Flower hanging in Ninu’s blog. It was so very sweet and I wanted to try that. But unfortunately, I could not get the pattern for the flower. I searched in net and found lot of pictures of the flower but not the pattern.
But that could not stop me from crocheting it so I tried to make up the pattern on my own. I tried the actual japanese flower and made this….

I can call this my own Japanese flower…
I made the initial round dcs to a sc ring followed by treble cluster( bobble stitch with trs) and followed the rest of the pattern as I was able to see/read from the pics.

I have an idea to make them as garland like this but I am not sure whether I’ll have time to finish it.
Most of the things that I blog now are which I completed when I was enjoying my long vacation at my mom’s home 🙂 sweet memories..

Have a look and post your comments.
Thanks,

Hi All!!

This is a simple crocheted headband.
The pattern is simple and it is available here in the internet
I made few stitches on the sides (to make it tapering) and attached a elastic covered with a cloth. Not a neat finish though..
Anyways it serves the purpose…

Prayer

Hi All,

I happen to read this prayer song from Mountainwings.com.
Hope you all will also appreciate it.

On The Wings Of Prayer
=======================

Just close your eyes
and open your heart,
And feel your worries
and cares depart.

Just yield yourself
to the Father above,
And let Him hold you
secure in His love.

For life on earth
grows more involved,
With endless problems
that can’t be solved.

But God only asks us
to do our best,
Then He will take over
and do the rest.

So when you are tired,
discouraged and blue,
There is always one door
that is open to you.

And that is the door
to the House of Prayer,
And you’ll find God waiting
to meet you there.

And the House of Prayer
is no further away,
Than the quiet spot
where you kneel to pray.

For the heart is a temple
when God is there,
As we place ourselves
in His loving care.

And He hears every prayer
and answers each one,
when we pray in His name,
Thy will be done.

The burdens that seemed
too heavy to bear,
Are lifted away
on the wings of a prayer.

Crocheted African flowers

***************************************
I wrote this and saved in drafts almost 10 months ago. Please read as if you are on Nov 2010. 🙂 🙂
****************************************
Hi All,

I am doing more of crochet these days, I have started few embroideries but I am little more interested in crochet so I am going with my interests. 🙂

So I tried these African flowers , I saw them first on flickr pool and got attracted by its colorfullness.

Initially I thought of trying a tissue box cover, ( In web, anyone starting crochet , does a tissue box cover in the beginning I dont want to left as an outcast, so wanted to try it out) but then saw this African flowers soccer ball and fell completely in love.

Well I am not much interested sports these days, but once I played volley ball/throw ball in school college days and my dh is also a professional cricket player. So with an intention of re-kindling our past hobbies, I started making this soccer ball.

Well, making those 22 hexagons and pentagons was really tiring, one after another, I got bored to make the same pattern flowers. Only change was the colours, even that I stuck for 4 main colors so that was so much of repetitve task.

Finally I started assembling it as per the diagram provided in this page. All was fine, joining for hexagons with pentagons.
OMG!! I could not proceed after joining them as shown in pic.

The ball is all lying flat instead of being round, I was tempted to write and ask for help.
Later with courage, I started to join all the loose hexagons with adjoining pentagons.
The rule I followed was all pentagons should be covered on all sides and slowly the ball started taking shape.
Thank God, finally I made it.
But I learnt a very important lesson in this, unless I understand the pattern, finishing and final product look, I am not going to venture into any experiment.

Well, Have a look at the african soccer ball and post your comments.
