I spent the week-end North Iceland and used the opportunity to visit Safnasafnið (the Icelandic Folk and Outsider Art Museum) in Akureyri, Svalbaðarströnd. I want to share with you especially the work of Rósa Sígrún and her crocheted wild Icelandic grasses and flowers.
All are full-scale, crocheted in white yarn, starched and handpainted with water colors and are an absolute delight for the eyes.
It´s also quite amazing to see so many different species in the same square meter!
Can you recognise them?

WOW! I have been a gardener for 30 years and have been crocheting for only three. This is art that makes me happy and calm. So skilful and beautiful.
Flowering crochet is something knew and enjoyable to me and the colours so so perfect in my wiev.
Maybe an example in a little bit simple and plain way like the – Afterthought would be a way to start on flowering
crochet. Thanks so much
Quel travail ! Quelle finesse ! Magnifique composition de fleurs, mousses, lichens, waouh ! Bravo à Rósa Sígrún, une artiste à découvrir.
