African flower hexagon...

I have seen these flowers for a very long time...
But never tried them...

African flower hexagon


After not having my "wool" fix yet...
I needed to do someting with all my little bits of yarn...
Ok...piles of bits of yarn...
and while surfing the google images I kept seeing these 
and thought...why not...

African flower hexagon


and I can see now why everyone loves them...
They are just gorgeous!!!
and very addictive...

African flower hexagon

But one can not survive on crochet and bits of yarn alone...

I need cake and lots of it...
to keep up the stamina and concentration...Of course...

I am a big fan of the African flower pattern and always smile kwhen i see them knowing they were created by 2 South African ladies (I come from SA). You colours are right out of the garden, just so pretty xox
