When I was in second grade, everyone in my class made cardboard Easter Bunnies to hang in the hallway of our school. My teacher had brought several books of wall paper samples for us to use, and we were allowed to pick the samples we liked best to make clothing for our bunnies. Mine had a blue dress, a yellow bonnet and lots of pink flowers all over it. When my mother came to the school for our Easter party, I proudly showed her the bunnies lining the hallway and asked her to guess which one was mine. She immediately pointed at mine and said "This one is yours." I was amazed and thought she must have some kind of special psychic powers that allowed her to pick my bunny out of the dozens on the wall. Years later, when I asked her how she knew which one was mine, she said "It was easy; I just picked the one with all of the pink flowers on it."Because, it seems, I have always had a thing for pink flowers; especially roses.
But still, I add them whenever I can.
I guess if I had to pick just one thing that defines my style, I would say that it would be pink roses. I just love everything about them.
But, it is Friday, so how about a contest? I will give one person their choice of any pdf pattern on my site, bellacrochet.com.
I will select the winner at random, and send out the patterns in the morning (Saturday.) I will post the name of the winner here, so be sure to check back in the morning to see if you won.
Also, if you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.)
To enter, just leave a comment answering this question:
Do you have a favorite style element that you like to use when it comes to crochet? (Irish Roses, pineapples, textured stitches like popcorns or clusters, etc?)
This contest is now closed.
Please check back next Friday for my weekly contest.
I love shells, all forms of shells and if I can add a shell I am happy
I love Irish roses and other flowers. I like crocheting colourful doilies/clothes. I often decorate them with roses, butterlies, leaves.
I like front and back post stitching.
I like them all, but I enjoy pineapples and ruffles the most.
I have just started to incorporate beads into my thread crochet work, and that is pretty cool... nothing too fancy yet, just beads that so far match the thread color but give a bit of 'something different' there... maybe I will get more adventurous one day!
All your dolies are just beautiful.. with love Janice
Vintage Victorian look. I named my business Rose Fleurs Victorienne Crochet, which means in French Pink Flowers.
I'm a flower girl! I also love Irish Crochet and think it Iis the most beautiful art form out there. Making those intricate pieces like roses, leaves, thistles, etc. all come together in a piece gives me goosebumps. I loved Kate Middleton's wedding dress and think it's wonderful that she too recognizes this lovely art form. I used to hate pineapples, thought they were very 70's, but through your works Ann have taken a fancy to them. I have collected pretty much all the vintage doily books I can find out there, particularly the floral books, over the years and have a box full of them. I refr to them when looking for a specific flower.
I love to use all different style of stitches. Bullion,Shell,Pineapple,Irish crochet, anything to give the project that special touch.
I love crochet flowers of all sorts one of my favorite things to make or add to projects. Right now I am making a Yoda and doubt he will be having any kinds of flower though LOL hmmmm....;-) oh and I Love PINK lots..
I love pink and roses too! My favorite roses are the little white tea roses - carried them on my wedding day almost 30 years ago .
My fave is textures for crocheting and I love front and back posts - I think they made something look so unique and feel so nice - especially with a softer yarn! thanks for all you do to adding beauty to the world and lovely things for us to want to make!
I like to use crab stitch to finish an edge whenever I can.
I love flowers, and also like to use front and back post stitches. Love your blog and your designs!
I love all type of stitches! I have an obsession with doilies lol!!!!
For me, I'd say it's all about color. I love working with beautiful colors that make me happy. :)
I love the potholder with the yellow background, I´m on a granny rush now, and so much would like to make a potholder like that one, it reminds me so of an old potholder my grandmother did and I have been trying to figure out how she did it. Yours is very similar :) <3 good luck everyone, bella crochet rocks :)
roses!!! any colour just they are
I love beads on my crochet and bullion stitch
I guess I would have to say pineapples would be mine...
I have no style as of yet I love so much of everything :)
I love Irish roses.
I love colour and crochet roses of any description :) Kaylene
I love lacy intricate doilies, doll clothes and I love using white with a touch of peach. Delicate and beautiful.
Recently Ive been in a pineapple mood. I just love your pineapple cross with flowers I cant wait to make that. Be blessed and crochet...Sherri
I like Bruges doilies, and doilies with combinations of several different stitches. I also like to crochet beaded doilies.
I like texture crochet, and now that I'm doing a lot of your patterns, I am really enjoying the 3D Look of layering stuff on top of the doilies. I love your flower pattern, it works every time. :)
