**~~~*~~~"Art is an experience"~~~*~~~**
My sister-in-law, Linda "Linda's Creative Niche" picked up a crochet needle several weeks before Christmas. I was, and still am AMAZED at her natural talent with this art. She has made so many cute treasures from hats, scarfs, baby sacks and more...
She encouraged me to give it a try.. well, I want to try everything you know, but I was skeptical to begin to learn something knew, as I have sworn to myself to focus on my sculpted creations as I am EASILY distracted..lol.. She continued to tell me how relaxing it is.. Okay, okay.. she didn't have to twist my arm too long.. My next trip to Wally World, I picked up a crochet hook and a thingy of yarn..
WELL All I CAN SAY IS.... I'M HOOKED!!!!!!! I have made a what I call the UGLY DUCK Coffee cup cozie and a little thank you gift, pocket purse for a wonderful customer & collector and I am now working on a fun, cute and Funky purse for my granddaughter to put away for Christmas next year.
ARE you wondering where the pics are of my projects? I will show you in a day or two.. even my UGLY DUCK coffee cozie... I am still working on the purse for my granddaughter and it has a sweet surprise that comes with it..
So when it is complete, I will show*n*tell....
I have found this ART to be extremely relaxing. Often, I cannot sleep, I will be up until 3 0r 4 in the morning working in my studio.. With crocheting an hour in the evening, curled up with a cozy blanket, I can wind down and be in bed before midnight.
I know many of you, already practice the art of crocheting,but if you have never tried it, I would encourage you to pick up a hook and a thingy of yarn and "GET HOOKED"!
