I recently crocheted a fairly simple crochet granny square blanket, but there’s a story behind the blanket, as there are with so many of the different things that we crochet, so I wanted to tell you a bit about it.
Hook to Heal is my newest crochet book featuring 100 creativity exercises designed to help you expand your inner and outer worlds through crochet. Today I’d like to share with you some of the exercises in the book so that you can get a sense of what you’ll find inside!
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate this holiday, and feelings of gratitude to you today anyway even if you don’t.
I am so thrilled, proud, excited to announce that the book that I’ve been working on for nearly three years is now complete and ready for purchase on Createspace, Amazon and Kindle!!!
I recently received a wire crochet lampshade kit from Yoola Design to play around with and share with you. I’ve loved Yoola’s wire crochet art for a long time, and I think that these sophisticated lampshades could add amazing handcrafted elegance to many homes, so I was happy to get a chance to try out the kit.
Today I wanted to provide an update on Mandalas for Marinke and remind you that there’s an upcoming deadline! All of your mandalas should be postmarked by October 15, 2015.
I just wanted to let you know that I have a long post up today on my personal blog, Diary of a Smart Chick, about the Mandalas for Marinke project and the personal impact it’s having in terms of my own life.
