    Thanks Sue, these are smaller in actual than it looks like in the pic. I havent done it with yarn, so I would love to see how it looks using yarn...

    Yes Chie, we are probably tuned in to the same frequency :D

    Thanks Pink, I would love to see you use this pattern, though you have a lot to choose from the lovely flowers online ;)
