"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose
ourselves at the same time." - Thomas Merton
Isn't that a great quote?! I think most of us can identify with it.
Although, I don't quite feel comfortable calling what I do 'art'. It's just
my simple crochet. I am working on an all white afghan for an acquaintance.
It will be a surprise to her. That's how I enjoy my crafting most, sharing it
Isn't that a beautiful crochet hook? I purchased it from an artisan booth
at Silver Dollar City this month, but they have an online shop called Dewberry Ridge.
If you are interested in any of their gorgeous hand turned wood crochet hooks or knitting
needles, you can find them here.
This yarn I picked up at Michael's yesterday with my coupon, of course.
The colors couldn't be more perfect.
To me, creating is something that is as much a part of my day as eating.
When I sit down, I pick up something to knit or crochet. I usually have several projects
going at once. I'm like that.
I like to make up flower patterns for Lindsey to use in her scrapbooking.
She likes that!
When we discovered blogs, we couldn't wait each day to read our favorite ones.
We tentatively decided to try blogging ourselves, not sure if we could be
interesting or inspiring. It was a slow start.
The thought of getting to know some of these amazing women was just a dream.
I can say now that I have friends all over the world and cherish this
blogging community. So many of you are part of my everyday thoughts and I feel
like I know you!
If you were with me last summer you may remember my 'virtual' walk to Deb's house.
One day while I was out walking, I had the idea that if I had an imaginary destination,
it would be more fun to walk.
I figured out the mileage from my house to hers, which was over 600 miles,
and started my journey. It has taken me a long time with many days not getting
very far and some days not at all, but I finally made it!
Look at the beautiful guest room that Deb had ready for me!
If I'd known how lovely it was, I would have walked faster!
Well, my friends, thank you so much for visiting with me today.
I wish you all much happiness!
