These colours, my friends, have been inspired by the amazing crocheters out there. Granny, Hexa or round, little bursts of colours are just making me so happy at the moment….
I have never made one of those lovely little squares, but to me it looks like the ultimate mobile project and a longterm affair you dont have to apologise for. I mean, crocheting 153 squares, then lovingly sew them together to create the crochet version of a quilt is just an achievement. That it may take 5 years to complete is totally ok. The end product is inevitably something you are going to cherish forever. Or your children.
Doesn’t everybody have a crochet pillow slip or lap blanket, inherited form a grandmother or great-aunt? I do. Several.
And then there are the contemporary crochet ‘artiste’….
These colours remind my of what is happening in my garden right now…..
If you are still sceptical, you must visit Lucy @ Attic 24 for some serious crochet inspiration. You’ll leave wanting to make yourself a hexagon scarf at least….
So, today I sprinkle you with some juicy colours and a special Spring offer.
