African Flower Soccer Ball

African Flower Soccer Ball, originally uploaded by EMCphotos.

Ta Dah!!!!!!! I did it! I did it! It's finally finished after lots of struggling with assembling this fun soccer ball. It is done so now I can move on guilt free to other fun projects. This is one UFO(unfinished object) that is finished at last. It's not perfect by any means but it's mine and it's something I have wanted to make for over two years. I have a great sense of accomplishment. It was a HUGE challenge for me and my little brain.

Thanks so much to bosall at flickr and crochetbug! Here is how to assemble this challenging soccer ball:

I couldn't have done this without bonsall and Crochetbug! Thank you so much!
Pattern is online here

I added this to Sarahndipities Blog:

Aren't these so pretty?? I couldn't resist taking a picture of the colorful scraps. I hope they brighten your day.

I am working on a BIG project that I have been putting off while making all these little pillows and Japanese flowers. Now I have to get down to business and finish the one that I have been procrastinating on because I am not sure how it is going to turn out. Are you intrigued yet? Well, it won't be long before the big reveal so stay tuned...

I hope you are all having a great week!

Liselotte's Crocheted Pin Cushion

Pattern here thanks to Hooked on Needles

Hers is so much cuter than mine but...mine's not bad for my first try.It was hard to get the yarn wrapped around it tight enough. Maybe I have too much stuffing?? I don't know but it was fun!
