Why so many turquoise? Well, two were teal but it had been made up for a long time - possibly up to a year - I never throw leftovers away. The turquoise and blue had also been made up for some time and they were fine but teal, not being one of the primary colours, can be a "funny" one. I can always do more if they don't turn out just as hoped!
I plan to use some of these in one of my next projects - Sharonb's Stitch Along.

The plan was to crochet them together to form rectangles for a bag but I should have given a little more thought to the shapes as I really can't see how I could get straight edges .............. there's rather a lot of movement in the frilly bits and some of the fancy yarns hide the working stitches. The learning of some more stitches might help as might joining pieces together as I work rather than ending up with lots of rather circular bits.

It looks quite at home in the flower bed but I don't think the elements would be too kind to it!
