Can You Guess What I am Making?

I am so excited! No, it doesn't take a lot to excite me - lol! Can you guess what I am making? It is a little difficult to tell from my pictures but I am making my first ever flower scarf!!!!! Yay!
Thank you Carmelina over at Creative Carmelina has inspired me to learn how to crochet flowers! I have always wanted to learn because for the longest time I have had an idea of crocheting a flower scarf but the problem has been that I didn't think I could learn how do do anything other than a straight or zig zag line! However, after blog hopping and seeing Carmelina's beautiful crocheted florettes I knew I had to put my 'big girl' pants on and just learn how to do it already!!!! lol! So I opened up the internet and found a pattern and went for it! YAY! Eventually, once I have all the flowers sewn together it will magically become a flower scarf! I am not your ordinary fashionista... I like to do things differently so I love flowing blouses, long skirts and most always... flowers in my hair! I have so many flower head bands I have lost count! I love making my accessories so this flower scarf works perfectly for my purpose! Once I am finished making the white flowers I may add some color to them but I haven't decided yet.
Thank you Carmelina for inspiring me to learn how to make them!

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. Happy Creating and much love!

PS What do you think of my new background and banner? These were difficult to choose and find the right colors to represent me ~ I think I finally chose right though!

Crocheting was my first love--you make me want to do it again (I don't think my eyesight is as good as when I use to do it though:)
And yes, I like your new blog format!!

Kelly, you're doing GREAT with your newest exploration! Your crocheted flowers are beautiful, and I'm excited to see the finished piece. I'm inspired to get out the crocheted blanket I was making, years ago, and see if I can recall how to do a straight line. I, too, fear I couldn't do more than a straight line, ;0. Wishing you a beautiful day with time to create and feel the love surrounding you! xoxo

You and Carmelina make me want to get out my crochet hook and wool too.
Happy scarf-making

Oh my wonder! I am so thrilled to have inspired such a burst of creative energy in you! The florets look so cute! Maybe I should also make a scarf too, and then come back here to thank you for further inspiring me. I'm always making crochet flowers and finding new ways to use them up is always a good thing in my creative books!

Ciao Bella!

I am so impressed! I need to put my big girl pants on and try to crochet again. I adore those little flowers and think they might be enough to motivate me to keep working at it!

Love the new background/banner! I just dug my crochet hook out after years so that I can crochet a hat for my big head! LOL I'm so sorry to hear that you're already in snow :o( Let the beaufiful dogwood keep you mindful of your spring vacation! Hugs :o)
