Crochet Bling!

I've recently developed a thing for blinging things with crochet - to be honest, if you add crochet to it then it's better right? 

I've been working on clothing for a while (you will have to wait and see that) but this week I've been blinging a clock I bought from Ikea for my new studio (more about that next week!) 

I crocheted lots of flowers, using a fabulous pattern from ATERGcrochet on Etsy (I adore her patterns and they are well worth checking out. She also allows you to sell items made from her patterns which is truly awesome!) 

I used Rico Cotton Essentials in lots of different colours from my stash.  It has a lovely sheen to it and, being cotton, has some stiffness to it when worked up on a small hook.

Once all my flowers where complete, I glued them on, using pegs to hold them all in place whilst the glue dried and voila, one significantly improved clock.

Who knows what will get the crochet bling next?
