On a hunt for nice materials to use I came across this lovely etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5841277
It's owned by Carmen from Waterford/Ireland. She makes gorgeuos crochet appliques and I particularly like her shop as it is local for me. So I purchased three lovely flowers:
They were packed in a sweet little bag and when I shook the envelope I could'nt believe what fell out of it. Carmen had packed another two smaller flowers as a present. What a sweet idea!!!
So, all you lovely bloggers and etsy fans, go onto her shop and support the irish!!!
