Yoko Suzuki's Anemones

- from Decorative Crochet 31, Jan 1993, pattern #14

Instead of sewing all the elements to each other I am trying to crochet them together as I go and minimize the sewing.

I treat the fiddly small leaves, C and D, like picots and make them as I come to them, thereby minimizing ends to weave in as well as omitting the sewing part. At the same time, I can sl st the other end of the leaf to a flower motif. Sometimes a piece gets attached upside-down then I need to re-do it, otherwise it seems to be working fine.

I have pinned the piece to a pillow to facilitate joining pieces in the right place and avoid problems with twisting. A better solution is probably to pin the piece to something pliable like a piece of plain coloured fabric or pillow case?
