Crochet Flowers - Jamie Style...

Crochet'ing was something I started during high school to become closer to my grandmother.  She didn't drive so I was often taking her to Wal-Mart or Michaels to pick up yarn and I thought if I was going anyway, I might as well start learning something!  I loved spending time with her; learning new techniques, listening to her stories, and learning her style.  She made many things but always the most beautiful blankets and I spent hours upon hours attmepting to mimic them.  At some point I realized that her creations were hers and that I had my own style.  It isn't always the most proper and a lot of times I make up my own rules (and loops)...but it is mine!
I started the larger flowers with a chain of five and went back in through the first loop.  I continued around until I was happy with the center circle and then I chained seven and went through a loop in the outer ring of the the circle.  I continued doing that until I had six 'petals'.  The smaller flower started the same, but I only used a chain of five for each petal and only created five petals.

What lovely flowers! My grandmother crocheted too, and I want to add something crocheted to a scrapbook page about her. I was going to chain a border, but your flowers are much cuter!!
