The garden is a happy (hippy) place.

We have been talking about crochet for the garden well here is another idea?

 Something about bunting makes me happy. Perhaps it is its association with celebration. Here is some of the bunting that Vicky and I have made. It is strung between a jasmin and a wooden fence. It is a bright and scented place to sit but it has shade if you are too hot. What more could you want?

Here are some close ups                                                                                          

It even looks good in a heap, somehow full of promise? 

I went off to make a bowl of strawberries at the end of the last post - well I did but I think you might need a pretty big bowl.

The bowl on the left has real strawberries in it, you can see that I got the scale a bit wrong. Never mind I have made them into key rings or bag charms. You will certainly never lose your keys again if they are attached to one of these.

 Strawberries make you think Wimbledon (or maybe cream) so I tried a tennis racquet. As you can see not everything  is successful, one hit and the handle ended at 90 degrees to the face! I used to play with one like this and it weighed a ton.

This is today's cliff hanger a pretty hippy type head band with flowers and bells. The question is what has it got to do with a tile spacer bought at B and Q? All will be revealed in the next exciting episode.


  1. More wonderful crochet for the garden! These posts make me so happy.

  2. Me too! We really like to share our ideas and the things we make. Thank you so much for your kind words.

  3. Wow, I love all the elements of your bunting especially the little owl-seriously cute and as always a colourful, happy project.

    1. Thank you very much. It certainly pays to have two crocheters in the family, Vicky and I build on each others designs and ideas - great fun!
