Flower Baskets

Handcrafted flower buttons which I'm going to use in my new hobby of crazy quilting. I've placed them on a card with a flower basket pic in the background and am about to sew them on as these eleven are a gift for someone and I thought that they'd look better like this than just sewn on a plain piece of card.

Miniature flower basket shawl knitted for the competition part of a Ravelry swap.

Fits this little bear perfectly!

ETA - Couldn't resist adding this one.

This is a motif cut from Venise lace, then hand-dyed and embellished with beads. A gift from my new friend, Nicki. Isn't it lovely!

    You're far more creative than I. The flower basket is lovely. I particularly like the daisy-like button at the bottom of the basket.

    The mini shawl is so beautiful and looks just adorable on your bear.
