Crocheting over rope - what the?

How pretty is this bouquet of crocheted flowers!

I read an interview with Lena Maikon in Yarn Link today about her very cool new book Unexpected Crochet for the Home (Leisure Arts #4858).  What really stuck me was Lena's original idea of crocheting over rope.   I love how she made this bouquet of Wildflowers using the rope to make the steams.  What an original idea!!

There are so many talented Crochet Hooker's out there, they inspire me and intimidate me all the time.   I can only dream of creating something so unique and beautiful.
