New Crochet Motif Book and Flower Baby Hat

Good Morning!
Last night I had to whip up a little flower baby hat for McKenna. I can't go there without a little flower hat for her and I can't wait to put it in her little head. On my way home from work yesterday I stopped by a Borders bookstore. Borders is a book store chain that is going out of business (online bookstores and Kindles are taking over!) and picked up a crochet book for 20% off: Beyond the Square: Crochet Motifs. They had a very small collection and most of the books were for knitting, I think there were only about four crochet books. I was hoping to find Crochet Bouquet but no luck. I am pretty sure buying it in Amazon.com is much cheaper anyways (hence why they are going out of business).
I didn't get a chance to make any new motifs yet because I was wanted to make McKenna's little hat, but by the end of the week I should have something to share.

After making the Japanese flowers, I looked into other Japanese patterns, you know how I love making flowers. As many other bloggers stated, the Japanese crochet patterns are fabulous!!! I think I am going to order some Japanese crochet books and use the diagrams like many other crochets have indicated (the language is all in Japanese).
So, in the upcoming weeks I should have a plethora of crocheted flowers to share - a true crochet garden.
XOXO Susan
