Here is "Swirls", a piece I just finished. The teal and purple swirls are free form crochet. When I wasn't sure how to turn them into a wall hanging, my mom suggested using white stretched canvas. I hate sewing and put off sewing the pieces to the canvas for several weeks. When I finally sat down to do it, it was very easy. I think it took all of 10 minutes. If that.

 I've been delving into Free Form Crochet. I tried a few flowers. The red and white one is my first attempt. It's 9 inches across, a bit bigger then I was planning. I started with the center of a granny square and added a long string. Then, I crocheted the petals on the string and around the center. Then I added a wire in the base of the petals and shaped it.

The second flower is much smaller. It is 5 inches across. I used baby yarn and a smaller hook. I also didn't do the center round piece. I like it much better. I still have other ideas in my head.

I made a hat for my friend's son to match the booties I made. I modified the hat pattern that I used on previous hats so that it would match the booties.

Here is a scarf that I crocheted for the gift exchange at work. Don't know who will get it. Will be fun to see how they react.

Here are a pair of baby booties that I made for a friend's little boy. I used a pattern that I found online from "Sandy's Cape Cod Originals".
Her blog is very nice. If you like these booties, please check out her other works.
