Crochet and Botany.

 Sometimes when I am working on a project, I feel like the horticulturist that I trained to be at uni.  It is such a funny way to cross over my past and present, making flowers that are botanically - well, if not accurate, at least recognisable.
Roses give me such joy. $20 for the plant bought years ago has given me endless posies. Even with the house being such a mess, roses in the centre of the table is the best distraction.
Lots and lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.


  1. The crochet flowers look lovely and the roses are beautiful, Kate!

  2. They look wonderful (both the crochet and the roses!)

  3. They are beautiful roses, and they have inspired me to invest in a rose plant or two...but first I need to look up how to look after them x

  4. Beautiful flowers (both: the crochet and the real ones!). One day, I want to have a garden with rose bushes too... They smell so lovely!

    Take care,
