Sunday Morning Creating ~ A New Tiny Flower Tutorial

Hello my dear friends,

what do you do on a cold Sunday morning when fresh snow has fallen? ... Normally I would head straight outside, get my snow blower out and start clearing the snow from my neighbour's driveways but I just felt like staying inside a little while longer instead.

Most of my time was spent answering the comments all you lovely bloggers had left me on my 'Grow Your Blog' post. Again I would like to say thank you to all of you for your kind words you have written to me ~ you have all touched my heart.

I would also like to welcome all my new and old followers to Todolwen again ~ it is so nice to have you with me because without you Todolwen wouldn't be where it is.
But now back to my creating of the morning ...

I love to crochet and I love tiny things too.
I am sure you all remember my tiny crochet flower I made some time ago and shared the tutorial here on Todolwen which you can find at the link below.

My Tiny Crochet Flowers

Sitting at my dining room window, looking outside and ...

... seeing all of the beauty of the fresh fallen white snow made me want to make something little in white. I decided on a new tiny flower. It is a variation from my first one which has five petals and this tiny new one has now four petals and it is just a pretty and neat and also just as fast to create too.

Here it is ...

... my tiny 'Snow Petal' flowers ... aren't they just so neat?!
These were crochet with a 1mm crocheting hook and Anchor crocheting yarn size 30.

And here is the tutorial on how to make them.
 As always there are written instructions and as also a graphic with crochet symbols.

How to make a 'Snow Petal' flower ...

... form a magic ring ~ into this ring crochet ...
... 3 chain stitches, two double crochet, 3 chain stitches, one slip stitch. Repeat this 3 more times finishing with a slip stitch. Now just fasten off, tighten the magic ring by pulling the tail of the thread, cut off and you are done with your little flower.

I hope my instructions are written so you will be able to create this little flower and now all you have to do is find something you want to embellish with them.
I again had so much fun creating this little crochet pretty and the tutorial for it as well. Now I hope you will have fun with it too. 
 It would be nice if you would visit me again some time here at Todolwen and until then ....
Stop! ... don' forget you can still take part in my GYB giveaway. Head to my right sidebar and click on the giveaway button on the top and leave a comment.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
Karen B.
