Crochet Art Project finished

Remember the Crochet project that was going to Chelsea flower show that never did? Well we have completed it and it had its first showing this weekend. I am totally stunned by everyone’s work, right from the beginners to the expert.

We had one brief – to produce something that depicts what helps to keep us mentally healthy. Mine was obviously running:

This next one is possibly my favourite. It was completed by complete beginners, at the beginning of this project non of them had picked up a crochet hook at all before!

Here they all are. Isn't it amazing?

Here are all the others. It amazes me how different they all are despite having the same starting point. I really hope you enjoy them:

Please notice the time for tea one on the left – the amount of detail is amazing considering the lady who made this considered herself a beginner a year ago!

The one on the bottom right is also a panel that I have not photographed before.

We all had so much fun doing this. The sense of achievement was amazing too. A huge thank you to Joanne. Already looking forward to the next challenge. x

Not much to show :(

I may have slightly over exaggerated with the title as I have nothing to show at all for the last two meetings of the Chelsea flower show project. I do however have a lot of ideas all in my head – honest 🙂

As for the others….well they are storming along.

This makes me realise just how big 1 metre by 1 metre actually is (huge!)
