Happy Flower Decoration

Today I am very excited to show you a little crochet project that I made: my Happy Flower Decoration.
It has been far too long since I got out my stash of cotton yarn and made up something colorful and fun. Back before I went back to work full time, I had much more time and energy for small little projects like this and making them made me feel happy and grounded.....oh the good-old-days, how I miss you sometimes.

Anyways, amidst the hustle and bustle that seems to be the new normal, I did manage to make this Happy Flower. I followed the pattern at Attic 24 to a tee and am quite pleased with the results. I was a little nervous painting glue onto the back of my work to stiffen it up (see the pattern for a full explanation of this) but was pleasantly surprised at how fantastic this worked at making the flower sturdy enough for hanging.
I used whatever odds and ends of cotton yarn that I had on hand, happily using up many scraps and clearing out the stash just a wee bit.

I have not quite decided where to hang my flower just yet, it may end up in my craft corner or in my closet....either way, wherever it is, it is sure to make me happy....

It was so fun to finally make a little project again, something quick to finish and easily satisfying. I am currently looking around for small, simple projects such as this one to make over the summer months when it is too warm to work on my cozy stripe blanket, and I need a little hooky for the car ride/campsite/pool side. Any suggestions?
