Donna shares, “I think all of my handmade gifts have a spirituality about them. I put so much into them. Having undergone psychiatric and psychological counseling, mindfulness has been a big part of my treatment. I found the times I crocheted were a natural vehicle for mindfulness.”
In my last roundup of beautiful crochet art, I mentioned street artist Julia Riordan. Her work is amazing so I wanted to share more of it with you today.
Sam Moss has a beautiful Instagram feed where she shares stories through mixed media miniatures that incorporate crochet.
Tanja’s Crochet is a handmade shop that sells crochet items. They are exquisitely well-stitched with attention to detail, and I love the simple beauty of the designs. I’m enchanted by the website, which showcases each of the different designs in a creamy white color; it reminds me of the work of Anna Kosturova in this way. But I’m also charmed by Tanja’s Crochet on Instagram, where the same pieces are featured in different color options as well.
It’s the time of the week when we take a look at what people are sharing in crochet using the #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife and #hooktoheal hashtags. You are always welcome to use these hashtags on any crochet photos on Instagram for a chance to be featured here.
I’m doing something a little different for this week’s edition of the celebration of Instagrammers who crochet. You can see all of the various contributions by visiting #crochetconcupiscence, #crochetsavedmylife, #hooktoheal and #mandalasformarinke on Instagram. But today, we’re going to honor the work of one fabulous featured crochet Instagrammer who shared an interview with us about the Weather Scarf she spent last year making, sharing it in stages with us using the community hashtags.
