My Love story with CROCHET

I  have been in love with crochet since I was a little girl,
I have seen my grand mother knitting , sewing, crocheting, tatting etc ..... she was a talented crafter
She taught me crochet and tatting and the rest of crafting spirit came via DNA ,I guess .
my mom does loads of knotting though.
I didn't had much of my teen time around my granny ,she went to be with the LORD when I was 14.
I wish ,could have learned more from her.
miss you nanni * ,but comforted with the fact that you are in better place.
How glad i am that you passed it on to me.luv you
[ * naa- nii- means maternal grandmother in Hindi ],

I have not been in much mood of crocheting big ,but need to play around Mr.Hook so made this yesterday.
I am not sure what I am going to use them for , but they can make many things pretty ,so lets see.
This is very simple pattern i came across in my granny's dairy .

I just can not stop hooking these little flowers.
If any of you want to try this  ,please feel free to let me know ,I will be glad to share the pattern .
It is the easiest of crochet flowers one can hook and pretty too.




  1. Do I see crochet hook in the center of these flowers? If so, what a cute way to give a present to a friend who crochets . . a bouquet of hooks.

    I would like to take you up on your offer of the pattern.

    I wish I had the patterns that my grandma had . . bvt I was 10 when she died . . and neither Mom nor I had any indication that I would grow to love her art form so much.


  2. Your flowers are cute. I didn't see the crochet hook until Paula mentioned it. My grandmother used to crochet. I lost her when my daughter was almost 2. I wish I had taken the time to learn more from her.


  3. Happy Weekend to You, Rachana....Oh, how I wish you lived close by so you could teach me how to correctly use a crochet hook. Knit, yes...quilt, yes....crochet...NO! I just cannot do it correctly. Your flowers are so sweet, and the crochet hooks for the stems is such a clever idea. Hugs, Genie
