  3. I found this post almost a year ago, and made these flowers as a beginner. I still really appreciate the pattern, and I've been having fun playing around with it. So I just wanted to stop by and say thanks so much for posting this!

  4. I really enjoy the way that you teach, how to make a flower. I especially like the way that you show the font and back view as you go. This makes it easier to follow what you are doing. I have been crocheting or 29 years and your technique is easy for beginners and intermediate crocheters. If there were more people like you it would make it easy for people to learn your techniques
