Flower Decoration

 Hello! Well I've been a bit busy lately but I managed a few squares for my blanket. I went to my brothers on Sunday and I made a flower decoration using Lucy's pattern. This is the bottom, I left off the heart but kept the flower and put a little bee button on it. This is one of the few times I've worked with beads and boy I really had fun!
 These are the leaves and stem.  It was easy to do and worked up fast.
 The flower top. I'm not happy with the first couple rows but I liked it better after adding the ladybug button. Again more beads, I'll need to find another project using them!
 Sort of a close up. It's so long it's hard to fit in the picture.
Hanging up. Not where it will stay but I wanted the picture against a bit of white. The directions say to pin and glue the back but I wasn't sure if I wanted to do that. I think it hangs okay as is. maybe later. Lots of fun to make. There are MANY pics in the directions, what I do is print a pic of the finished item, then a few of parts that have details I might need to see. Then I write out the pattern on the pages I printed the pictures on. Saves on ink. I like the way Lucy does her patterns, great for beginners and everyone in between. I think she could  easily write a crochet book! Anyhow, I'm off to school soon so I must be off. Have a good one!
