Flowers on the International Women's Day

My Facebook newsfeed since the early hours of this morning was a very bright and flowery place. Although - and as like most of the posts reminded us - I believe women should be celebrated 365 days a year and instead of roses we should be spreading tools and information to stop the ongoing abuse that so many of us still suffer, I can't help but to offer flowers to my lovely and inspiring female friends. And to every women in the world I wish strength and a reason to smile every day.

According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), "around the world, as many as one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or abused in some other way - most often by someone she knows, including by her husband or another male family member; one woman in four has been abused during pregnancy".

THIS HAS TO STOP AND IT NEEDS TO STOP NOW...

I came across this image on Pinterest and I want to share with you this lovely Bulgarian blog by Carmela Biscuit. She is sharing with us the pattern for these wonderful little crochet flowers she attached to twigs to make this arrangement. A sweet idea, as crochet flowers will brighten your life everyday of the year! I strongly recommend you to add her blog to your favourites. I've done it already =)

I've been trying different patterns and should soon be writing another post with more flowers you can add to this arrangement or to any other project of yours! If you're into crochet, check the section next week. Also, this Sunday I will announce the next giveaway as we reached 100 likes on Facebook! Thanks everyone and before I forget Happy International Women's Day!
