Full Circle

I've been stitching away at the crochet flowers, completing at least a couple each day. Now I've made it all the way around the colour wheel.













My plan was to add the brooch backs and offer these for sale at the Christmas market. I may still do that, but I am rather taken with how they look as a group like this. And I have some scraps of cotton left--you know how I am with scraps--so the story continues.

Total cuteness!

Wow! They certainly do look impressive laid out in the colour wheel. I think they'd sell well at your market, but I'm seeing them stitched onto some backing fabric as a wall hanging ...

Thanks--at the very least I'll pin them out in a wheel for display:)

They look so good! :) On their own they are cute but laid out in the colour wheel they really zing.
They really would make a very textile tragic wreath. I could picture them on a wreath hanging at your home. It would certainly get a smile and comment as it would be unique and eye catching.
Do your brooch backs have the double feature of also being hair clips? I have seen some of these in the stores and it is a great idea as it doubles the options for the wearer.

I cannot find the perfect words to describe the deep satisfaction I feel when I stare at this photo. It could only be superceded by staring at them face to ...er, rose. They really belong together and I imagine that buyers will have a hard time choosing only one!

The beauty of using hair clips is you can also clip them onto your shoes. But you may need a matching pair ...
