Crochet Succulents ~ Fiber Comes to Life!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I am sooo excited to show you the Succulent Plants I just crocheted!

The brillant patterns are from Planet June and they are a delight to make!

I cannot believe how life-like they are!

I used my favorite Amazing Yarn from Lion Brand and my "coffee and rocks" planters I made for my moss terriarums to plant them in!

The plants look so real I have picked them up twice already to water them when I water my real plants.  Tee Hee. :)

I am so excited about them that I may never buy a real plant again!

June is a true master at crochet, design and pattern writing!

If you have not visited her website, etsy shop or blog yet... Please do!

You will be delighted, inspired and so happy you did!

I have made several pots up already and have about 6 empty ones lined up to fill next!

I adore seeing them spring to life!

I will show them to you as soon as they are complete.

Here are the ones I have already done...

Archie is so happy that I am crocheting all of my plants now because soon he will not have to "help me" every Sunday morning when I gather up my living plants to water.

He would much rather that I stand still for a minute so that he could lay at my feet without having to follow me back and forth from room to room! :)

Silly puggy!

Doesn't he know by now that I am always moving from room to room? :)

What FUN things are you doing today?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about your day!

They are all beautiful, Melissa! I'm so glad to see how you've been enjoying my patterns. I love your yarn choices too - they really add an earthiness to the designs :)

How cute they are and the best part is that they'll never die because you forgot to water them!

Oh gosh, we love the colors you chose for all the succulents! They look so real. In fact we want to reach out and touch them. We want to sniff them and we just know we would be able to smell the earth as if they were real plants.
We love the little design that you made for the tops of them- like they are getting ready to bloom. And we also noticed some of your rock and agate arrangements that we love too!
The little creatures look happy that are nestled into their happy little plants. Plants that will be happy forever.
These are so amazing!
