Here's a little update on the crocheted wreath. I have done the flowers and am planning on making the bird next week at sewing (where I have access to the pattern).
Some of the flowers are done in a pattern I use regularly for flowers. I can't even remember where I got it from. Others are done in the May Rose pattern on the Atic24 blog. The leaves are my own design and I'll post a tutorial soon. I can write out the pattern but it will make more sense if I have pictures to explain a couple of parts to it.
