Nora rocks!

I have been very excited about writing this post.  After creating the new baby bunny dresses I had thought about making some felt flowers to add that finishing touch (it’s all in the detail!).  I really need the whole bunny and dress to be washable so I had a better idea to use cotton crochet flowers instead.  As I can neither knit nor crochet I had a little hunt on the internet and found the lovely Nora .  I emailed her about commissioning some work and was very, very impressed by her quick response and friendliness.  

We have had been chatting via email and I have discovered that Nora is a pensioner living in the Borders who has been doing crochet for 52 years, she loves what she does and takes a lot of pride in her work.  I found Nora via an old chat room forum and ebay where Nora has been selling her lovely flowers for next to nothing.  As she is a pensioner every penny counts so she would much prefer to take on commissions and is open to any ideas to help her sell her work for a fair price. Nora is contactable via Folksy (CROCHET WITH LOVE 4 YOU) through her profile or I am happy to pass details along to her if you leave a comment.  She has also just started a website at Crochet and Beyond.

Well the flowers arrived this lunchtime and I am so pleased with them.  As you can see they are the perfect finish for the bunny dresses.  As always my head is now buzzing with new ideas involving crochet flowers…
