Hooked on Crochet

A jigsaw puzzle of granny square flowers led me to buy the book on which it was based (Granny Square Flowers by Margaret Hubert). I had planned to make something for my mom's birthday, and I thought a nice afghan would make up for being late. The flower patterns were delightful. I hadn't crocheted for many years, decades even. But I remembered all the stitches, and I was able to follow the directions.
Here's the first four granny square flowers that I made.
The start of another granny square flower (cherry blossom).
A crochet basket made out of my bulky wool yarn, holding the remainder of my bulky yarn. From an online pattern for sale by Gleeful Things.
