I made three more of the woolly flower brooches.

As you can see, I'm still experimenting with different patterns. The one on the bottom left is my current favourite. It's done in crochet. I like the combination of semi-defined petals with the overal spiral effect. This burst of blooms was set off by a request for several of the knitted roses (top centre) and I have two more colours to do. I usually make these out of leftovers, but since I've had to mix and spin the colours to request, I've got enough to play with. I suspect I'll run out of enthusiasm before I run out of wool. Then it will be time to give them a rest and move on to something else.

Who knows? Making lots of variations keeps it interesting.
