I am always delighted when Michelle of Forever__Autumn__ shares her work using this #crochetconcupiscence tag on Instagram. She has a quote in her bio there that reads, “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world, for indeed, that’s all who ever have.” I don’t know a lot about her personally but I really think that this quote, along with her crochet work speaks for itself, with its delicate beauty, richness of heart and bright inspiration.
