African Flowers

I've been toying with Heidi Bears' African Flower pattern.  As I'm still joining my Summer Garden Granny blanket I'm not quite ready to embark on another full-scale blanket project.  Instead, I settled on a quick dangly hexagon for my bag.
I crocheted two African flowers, both in DK Cotton using a 3mm hook, so that they worked up quite firm.  Then I slip-stitched them together at the edge.
These two African flowers are actually back-to-back.  Something beautiful for my bag to hint that I crochet.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to my friends in Dorset for this beautiful hand-made drawstring bag.  
The print is lovely, very pretty, a vintage look to it.  The bag is lined and has two internal pockets, just right for my crochet hook and scissors.
I use it as my go-everywhere crochet bag and it gets popped into whatever I'm carrying every day.  Well, you never know when you'll get a chance to crochet.

Many Thanks
