Spring is in the Air?

Oh well, not really! But the milder weather and hardly any snow makes me think of spring. I have started these felted crochet flowers before Christmas and now I finally got the hang of finishing the pattern. Valentine's Day is coming up so I called them "Felted Flower Valentine". They don't require special crochet skills, only chain, single and double crochet. Felting is also a very forgiving technique. I have made quite a few so far and I just throw them in with my regular laundry on the hot setting. One can imagine that doing laundry is a little more interesting when a felted flower appears!
