You know I love The Vintage Magpie. I love her lovingly made, traditional cudly creations. All her bears and rabbits are handmade by her using 100% pure mohair and filled using polyester/cotton fibrefil and dried French lavender.
I admire her talent and persistance, and her courage to follow her dream. .
Don't you just love her work? I do!
I don't know how to. But I love it. I love seeing it. I fantasize about touching it. Cudling with my loved ones in it. Warm colors. Vibrant colors. Pastel colors. All the women I knew who could crochet thought it was not necessary for me to learn, that it was not worthy a task. Silly thinking.
Think of it that way: What will you do if you get old and your vision fails you? Crochet, of course! (Plus the classics in audio books, classic music~start to finish and the Bible in mp3 or 4 or 8!)
Never mind. You know and I love seeing your work! Keep it up and enjoy!
Can you name the one piece of jewellery that spells "chic" all year round?
Yes, you are so right!
