Crochet covers, a Monet? In your Dreams

Every now and then I have an idea for a new note book cover, the idea then goes round in my head until I try it. This week ( very rare occurence) I had two ideas:

 My still life.It is mainly crochet flowers and leaves but there are a few buttons and beads.
 Then there is a valentines day gift of a heart
 on the sleeve of a book. The trouble is that sideways it looks like a pregnant heart.

Close up of the wooden buttons.

Then there was a customer who wanted another dream catcher, the result says something about me and my stash and is further proof that if left alone for any length of time things will turn pink.

 This is the completed piece - it is the photographer that leans!

 The rest are just details from the dream catcher.

I know it is hard to believe but nothing was specially bought it all came straight from tins, boxes,  drawers and cupboards in my house. I keep thinking it really is time to have a clear out and then I do something like this and realise that I need it all.

A few people have asked about sourcing piercing crochet hooks -Vicky thinks she bought them on Amazon.
