Let me be very clear ... I am not very skilled at crochet ... I am very much a beginner. My grandmother made beautiful lace doilies, tablecloths, and bedspreads. My mother also loved crochet ... she made lovely and complicated afghans, pillows and other home decor items. As a child, I was surrounded by crochet titans! So naturally, I avoided crochet ... too much to live up to!
The Patchwork Heart blog and facebook page often! Such inspiration! I shared this photo on my fb page with the comment that they were the cutest coasters ever! I love following Heather and her projects. We are both full-time teachers, and live on the coast (she in England). Heather's talent is amazing! She sells her work and does special orders as well. At some point, either on facebook or her blog she shared the pattern source for the coasters! I couldn't resist ... I had to check it out ... you'll find the pattern link here.
Here is the link, her work is impressive!
Do what you love. Accept a challenge. Do dillydally!
Poor Flicka! Her challenge is learning knitting/crochet manners! Yarn is just so tempting! Too fun!
