Today's Crochet Inspiration
The purpose of this post is to make you smile. The happy little baby is my niece, Maya, wrapped in the blanket I made for her. It was one of those moments when she was giggling, and the more we laughed with her, the more she laughed back...she is adorable. When I look at this picture all I see is how comfy and cozy she looks, and how happy it makes her. Now this is what living is all about!
I was thinking about how much I love crochet and why. I think it just goes with life. Or at least it goes with my life! I love graphic shapes and lots of color and crochet offers it up on a big ole plate! I can't imagine living in my house without my afghans, pillows and other crocheted treasures around me.
These are a few of my flickr faves, which I often refer back to for inspiration. If you think that crocheting granny squares is for the little old ladies at the rest home, I offer this to you...I think it's art. Painting with yarn. Art that you can touch and wrap yourself up in. It touches all your senses!
Hopefully I am leaving you with a smile on your face!
