'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

African flower in square

Pilar (Flickr Pertinitaco) made this beautiful diagram for
crocheting eight-petal african flowers into squares.

You find the larger picture on Flickr >>

    thank you so much Mia for posting this! I hope you all find it of some help.
    Hugs, Pilar

  4. Ooh, so lovely - I am inspired to abandon granny squares for a while and branch out - thanks for posting the diagram as I seem to be a visual learner. Patterns flummox me but if I can see it drawn out I'm good to go.

  5. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be
    running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem
    fixed soon. Kudos
