Crochet Flower Display - part 1 my idea

This is me! On my way to blog in a coffee shop! I generally like to get out of the house when I blog and it's a great excuse to have a yummy caffeinated beverage. However a lot of post are also written late at night after my children are fast asleep and I have finished everything else that needs to be done.

Hello everyone!!! I am so excited to announce that I will be creating a display to enter into a county fair contest. My display will be 3ft tall and 4 ft wide and 2 ft deep!!!

The theme is Home Sweet Home so I will be having a white picket fence made out of foam core board and I will be attaching crochet flowers and insect from around the world to it.  It will also have a crochet home sweet home sign!

There are many other elements but this is my basic concept

Check out THE AMAZING display Mikey and THE CROCHET CROWD did

I was inspired by the lovely tree that Mikey @ the crochet crowd did. However I wanted to also do my own thing. To me when I think of the ideal home I think of the white picket fence and a pretty garden. I couldn't decide which flowers I want to use but then thought it would be neat to find everyone's favorite flowers and use them.
The national Flower for Bolivia
For example how pretty is this tri color flower from Bolivia?
This was tagged as a yellow Irish flower
I want to recreate this picture exactly! A lovely yellow flower and bee going about its daily duites.
I don't want to use patterns ( though I may create some) I want to find things in nature and crochet something based on it.

This flower was tagged as a flower from Germany
This flower reminds me of a pinwheel! I love the shape of the petals!
This Blue Beauty is from Africa
This won't be the easiest but I love the shape and color.

And of course I will be using these flowers

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
