Flowers for Memories #Yarndale2015

I have loved crocheting  these little flowers for this years  wonderful Yarndale 2015 project! 

I used my MoYa yarn to crochet these little flower designs from  Lucy at "Attic24" blog and added cute little buttons. 

I decided I would group the flowers into little "posies" of 4 flowers  and sew them all together. I added little leaves again using MoYa beautiful Whisper range of yarn. The colours are Mint and Azure. 

 This year Yarndale 2015 is in Skipton, North Yorkshire  on the 26,27 September. Yarndale is described as a festival celebrating all things woolly and wonderful! It hosts a wonderful selection of talented and passionate exhibitors. It also has skill demonstrations and textile workshops.


This year the creative community project is called "Flowers for Memories". They are working with a local artist Sheila Metcalfe ( known as the Crochet Queen) who  fundraises for the Alzeimer's Society. 


This is a large scale creative project as Yarndale are inviting everyone to join in making a whole garden of flowers. You can make as many little flowers as you like and send them to Skipton where they will then create a rainbow themed wall of floral colour. This is going to look amazing!

 I am so pleased to be a small part of this worthwhile charity event for Alzheimers Society! 
There are some specific details for the flowers, so go to their site to get all the details: 

  Have a wonderful creative Wednesday and week! xx


  1. Beautiful crocheting for a great cause, Shirley! I really love the yarn that you're using for your flowers, too...

  2. So pretty! love the colours that you have used

  3. Love the pastel colours you have chosen, a great event for a great cause. They are beautiful flowers, I crocheted hundreds of them for wreaths for my daughters wedding last year.
