I recently discovered the beautiful world of fashion by CeliaB. She works with bold prints and colors. Her designs are fun and funky but wearable. She doesn’t work entirely crochet but she has incorporated crochet into her collections and I love the way she does it. Her work reminds me a little bit of what crochet fashion designer Katie Jones does.
Happy Thanksgiving! Every year on this day I do a post about why I’m thankful for crochet. It’s important to me to do this because crochet saved my life and it continues keeping me sane, stable, and happy as well as connected to an amazing online and offline crafting community.
One of the things that I’m giving thanks for this year is that so many wonderful people have supported me in my journey with crocheting through depression. In return, I’m offering 40% off on my book, Crochet Saved My Life, through Christmas.
