If Crochet Grew On Trees...

The other day, my daughter gave me a note she had written, and told me it was "mail from Crochet Land".  I thought this was a very creative way for her to get my attention!  It also got me thinking about what "Crochet Land" might be like.  One of the first things that inspired me to learn crochet, was some French crocheted flowers I saw in a boutique in London.  I really love it when I see things from nature inspiring crochet, especially when they aren't too literal.  Pictured below, are some beautiful images I have found of this type of work.  I believe this is what crochet would look like, if it grew on trees in Crochet Land!

Now that 2011 is coming to a close, I am thinking about what kinds of crochet adventures I will have in 2012, and what kind of qualities I want my crochet work to have.  I will strive to create delicate yet modern pieces, with an interesting eye-catching twist.  I hope my designs will have crocheters excitedly  reaching for their hooks and yarn!  May 2012 be a wonderful year, filled with exciting projects.  Happy New Year, dear readers!
