Notes – So I actually finished this block today but it isn’t one of my favourites, I loved crocheting the main flower and I got really excited when I had to go behind four of the petals, I loved it and it worked up pretty easily too. However I struggled with the BPDC – Back Post Double Crochet stitch, especially when it was worked through Single Crochet but I used Dedri’s tutorial on her blog Look at what I made and muddled through it. I did however add a further round (15) as it was rather on the small size but I crochet quite tightly so didn’t mind I just repeated round 12 but without the Front Post Double Crochet instead I just popped in a chain.

And after all that here’s the final piece:
